    Prague, May 25 (CTK) - The Czech police are investigating the Nase vojsko (NV) bookshop and publishers for offering for sale various objects with Nazi themes such as T-shirts and teacups featuring Adolf Hitler and Reinhard Heydrich, daily Lidove noviny (LN) writes yesterday.

    A T-shirt or teacup with a picture of Heydrich, chief of the Reich Main Security Office and Acting Reich-Protector of Bohemia and Moravia killed by Czechoslovak paratroopers in 1942, can be bought for 300 crowns, LN writes.

    NV also offers posters with Karl Hermann Frank for 3,000 crowns.


    "Selling the teacups depicting not only the murderers of the Czech nation, but also civilisation murderers is tasteless, to say the least," writer and publisher Jiri Padevet, who has published several books from the war-time era, told the paper.
    NV director Emerich Drtina dismisses the notion that the offered objects promote Nazism.

    "Denunciation was common during the war and under the Communist regime. This is passed down the generations," Drtina said.

    "I was already questioned by the police. These are cultivated people who cannot see any propaganda in this," he added.

    He said the offer of the objects with Heydrich were just a widening of the assortment.

    A few weeks ago, Drtina said the objects with Hitler were to "thrill the public," LN writes.
    It is now also offering goods with Heydrich.
    "Interest in the things with Heydrich is not big. However, we have only had them for two months," a shop assistant who requested anonymity told the paper.
    "There is the biggest interest in the objects featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin. Lots of people have bought them. Pop star Karel Gott is also popular," he added.

    "The Czechs were better than the Hungarians, the Romanians, and the Poles. A diligent petty bourgeoisie had formed which was keenly aware of its boundaries. Even today they will look up to us with both anger and boundless admiration: 'We Bohemians are not meant to rule!"
