International Students' Day
The idea of creating an international association of students born in Europe in the late XIX century. In 1893, in Geneva convened by the International Congress of Socialist Students, who made a decision: to establish and develop links between students from different countries. Significant impact on the development of the student movement made the tragic events of autumn 1939 in Czechoslovakia. Then on Nov. 17, thousands of students of Prague and their teachers filled the streets to protest against the Nazi occupation, but they were arrested by Nazi authorities and executed or sent to concentration camps. International Students' Day was established in 1941 in London, on the bright memory of the dead students in Czechoslovakia.
