War history in a broader sense of the word is integrally connected with the historical memory. No matter whether it was a battle which lasted just a few hours or a besiege of a castle or a Down that lasted several months, there could be a remembrance of dead forefathers, contaminated only by unintentional errors and subconscious tendency to heroize, or it could be a purposefully constructed (deformed) picture – the latter example applies to period or modern distortions motivated by various national and ideological intentions. Neumüllers-Klauser has recently demonstrated the broadness, variety and development of various media – mostly on German examples used to commemorate war events. Memorial media usual at a particular period were known and used also in the Czech environment which the author analyses in detail in the initial part of the paper; this section is followed with a case study focused on the memory of the dead in the battle of Vyšehrad (1420) in St. Pancras’ Church.
