{Marker text in Czech:}
Bylí v téchto místech a na Hradčanském Námĕstí brutálnĕ napadeni ozbrojenou komunistickou policií vysokoškoláci, kteří v mnohatisícovém pochodu na hrad šli podpořit Prezidenta Beneše v úsilí zachovat svobodou a democracii.

Na pamět odvážných studentů, kteří se v osudových chvílích našeho národa nebáli vzepřít nastupujícímu bezpráví.

{Directly to the right of the marker, a plaque translating the marker into English has been provided, reading:}
A multi-thousand march of university students heading to Prague Castle in support of President Benes and his effort to preserve freedom and democracy, was brutally attacked by armed communist police at this place and in Hradcany Square. In memory of the brave students who, at the fateful moments of this Nation, were not afraid of opposing incoming lawlessness.
