The unveiling of a memorial plaque takes place at the University of Economics, Prague. The memorial plaque placed on the Stará budova (SB, Old Building) will commemorate former student of VŠE, Jan Palach. His self-immolation is a symbol of protest against the general passivity and repression of freedom not only in the Czech and Slovak Republic but in the world. Besides the unveiling of the memorial plaque, an atrium in the Žižkov campus will be given his name.
