Long Description:
CS:
Osazení pametního kamene i vysazení lípy bylo realizováno v roce 1915 na pripomínku 500 let od upálení Jana Husa. Spolu s kamenem zde byla zasazena lípa, stojící zde dodnes.

"Soucasný kámen (rok 2011) je pouze replikou puvodního pametního kamene s kalichem, který se pri rekonstrukci parku v roce 2006 ztratil. O rok pozdeji byl nahrazen údajným "smírcím" kamenem s maltézským krížem. Po protestech obcanu byla v zárí 2009 pred lípu osazena replika puvodního kamene, opet s kalichem a nápisem: 500 let upálení Mistra Jana Husa 1415–1915." (Jan Bartoš, zdroj níže)

Jan Hus:
"Born in 1370, Hus became an influential religious thinker, philosopher, and reformer in Prague. Hus believed that Catholic mass should be given in the vernacular, or local language, rather than in Latin as well as many teachings of John Wycliffe. This did not go over well with the Vatican in Rome and Huss was ultimately condemned by the Council of Constance and burned at the stake in 1415.

The people of Bohemia and other regions around Prague were constantly under oppressive regimes. Jan Hus became a symbol of dissidence and a symbol of strength against oppressive regimes. His opposition to church control by the Vatican gave strength to those who opposed control of Czech lands by the Habsburgs in the 19th century, and Hus soon became a symbol of anti-Habsburg rule."
