Eighty years on. 15th November 1939


In Prague, the Gestapo arrested and executed nationalists attending the funeral of Jan Opletal, who had been wounded during the patriotic parades of October 28th.

In France three hours were added to the official working week, making it 43 hours.  Author’s note.  Possibly the only time that French trade unions have accepted longer working hours.  It is currently (2019) a maximum of 35 hours and 10 hours maximum per day.
