11/1/2007 - NYT Arts section. A Croatian rock group's concert, that had been scheduled for the cultural center run by the Croatian at the Church of St. Simon and Methodius, located at 10th Ave. and 41st St. It was canceled said spokesman Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center (a goal there is to counter anti-Semitism),because of protests that some lyrics glorified the WWII government, the Ustache, that was a flip side of the Nazis in terms of support. The artist: Marko Perkovic (Thompson is the stage name). Apparently there is a slogan in a song that echoes the Ustache regime.
Protesters included Nenad Milinkovic, of a Serbian-American church in Manhattan.
- Of interest especially to us is the name, St. Cyril and Methodius - the same name of the Orthodox Church in Prague CZ where the assassins of Nazi Reinhold Heydrich were finally cornered and killed themselves. Go to the posts at Czech Republic Road Ways , specifically Operation Daybreak, Assassination of Reinhold Heydrich. Also look at Places of Petr Ginz, for a similar post, at An Assassination in the life of Petr Ginz. Petr Ginz was a 12-13 year old boy in Prague during the Occupation in WWII, and he had entries related to that assassination.
The names of saints recur in many countries - and people bring them to where they emigrate. Connections, connections.
