Jan Palach and Jan Zajíc were both students in Prague who met on January 16th. or February 25, 1969 in Prague in protest against the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Warsaw Pact troops. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary, it was criticized that there was no monument dedicated to them in Děčín.

The monument, now designed by the famous architect David Vávra, consists of a glass column and the two names, each with a handprint. When you touch it, the column lights up in different colors. It will be placed directly in front of the Evangelical Church on Teplická Street.
