Heliodor Píka


Heliodor Píka

Heliodor Píka (July 3 1897 Štítina (near Opava) – June 21 1949 Prague) was a Czechoslovak army officer, who was executed by the Communist regime after a fabricated trial, mainly because of his pro-Western attitude during his appointment as the head of Czechoslovak military mission to the Soviet Union during the World War II.

After 1968, his case was reopened. In a renewed process, a military tribunal found him innocent on all charges.
