Description In the first decade of June 1942 in the case of the analyzed dailies an apotheosis of the dying Deputy Protector R. Heydrich and a concentration of hateful rhetoric against the resistance movement, especially the London one and in particular against the president in exile E. Beneš, is typical. In the second decade of the same month in the concerned dailies we find a typical hysterical rhetoric challenging the Czech nation to inform on the organizers of the assassination; denunciation was presented as an expression of patriotism and heroism. The third decade of June and the beginning of July was marked by the diction of relief at the capture of assassins, in the following months and years, at least on the pages of the analyzed dailies, the seeming calm character of the strategy of depolitizacion of the protectorate is evident.
