  • Frantisek Blecha Suicide April 17, 1912

    Frantisek Blecha Suicide April 17, 1912

    This album contains images of the actual newspaper articles describing the suicide of Frantisek Blecha in 1912. It was big news in the Czech papers in Chicago, but it was minor news in the English papers because the Titanic had also just sunk and that news outshadowed the Blecha story.
