Czech Medal for the "Second National Uprising"


Recommended Posts

All I can find is created in 1946.

The obverse "For faithfulness 1939-1945" is rather inappropriate, since from what I can tell, this is for the May 1945 Prague uprising--continuing after the war had "ended." The "1st National Uprising" was crushed in Slovakia in 1944 when the approaching Red Army was bogged down in the Carpathian mountains for 9 months.

Hi,

the original name is Pamětní odznak druhého národního odboje, in English Commemorative Badge of Second National Resistance. This bronze medal was established by the government resolution dated may 14th, 1946. It is quite common, non expensive, no fakes exist :). More details here:
