The Masaryk Case book. I believe her strong suspicion was murder, partly because Mararyk's father had helped found Czechoslovakia after WWI and was an avowed anti-communist. Interesting chapter of history.

This book is about the murder of democracy in Czechoslovakia and the mysterious death of the Foreign Minister, Jan Masaryk.

1697 The Masaryk Case, by Claire Sterling (read 2 Mar 1982) In September 1981 I went to Czechoslovakia and so I decided to read this book. It is about the fall of Jan Masaryk on March 20, 1948, from a window in the Czernin Palace in Prague. The guide we had in Prague had known Masaryk and said he was a nice fellow-the guide also said the window was closed behind him. This book does not make a point of that, but concludes Masaryk was smothered with a pillow and then pushed out of the bathroom window. But it is just a thesis.

Born in Prague, he was a son of professor and politician Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk (who became the first President of Czechoslovakia in 1918) and Charlotte Garrigue, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk's American wife. Masaryk was educated in Prague and also in the USA, where he also for a time lived as a drifter and lived on the earnings of his manual labor. Claire Sterling (1969). New York: Harper & Row.

The son of Czechoslovakia’s founder Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, Jan .

The son of Czechoslovakia’s founder Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, Jan Masaryk was foreign minister in the Czech government in exile in the UK and retained that post until 10 March 1948, when he was found dead beneath the window of his third-floor apartment at the Foreign Ministry’s Černín Palace. One interpretation is that his murder was the work of ministry officials Jan Bydžovský and František Fryč, who believed they were working for British intelligence but had in fact been duped by the Soviet NKVD. Ahead of the 70th anniversary of Jan Masaryk’s death I discussed some of those issues with Pavel Šílený of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Trade Paperback. This book is about the murder of democracy in Czechoslovakia and the mysterious death of the Foreign Minister, Jan Masaryk. Eastern Europe after World War II belonged to the Soviet Union, something Masaryk and the Czech people could not accept. On March 10, 1948 Masaryk was found dead at Czernin Palace. The communists ruled his death a suicide. Most Czechs did not believe this and during the 1968 rebellion, in the relatively relaxed atmosphere of the Dubcek regime, they began a search for the truth. Claire Sterling, author, sifts all the explanations and builds a persuasive case for murder. 374 pages. 8.25 x 5.5 inches. A Nonpareil Book/David R Godine Publisher, Boston, MA 1982
