From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Emanuel Moravec (April 17, 1893, Prague – May 5, 1945 Prague) was a pre-war Czechoslovakian army colonel who became a Nazi collaborator during World War II.

Moravec worked as a professor at the higher military school in pre-war Czechoslovakia. After the Munich agreement, he decided that the only hope for a peaceful life was to join the Third Reich. So he served as joint Minister of Education and National Enlightenment in the puppet government of Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, which was reorganized by the Reich Protector Reinhard Heydrich in January 1942. As propaganda minister, he painstakingly persuaded the Czechs to be loyal to Nazi Germany. He is infamous among Czechs as a traitor and collaborator during the occupation of Czechoslovakia; as such he is also known as "Czech Quisling". At the end of the war, he committed suicide because he was afraid of being executed for treason.
