Jan Staněk (1919–1945) was one of the tragic casulties of World War II. He was born in Prague. His father owned a printing house that specialized in poster production. After completing his graphic art and design studies, Staněk fully immersed himself in the work of the company. He designed and produced a great many posters and other printed matter, while intensively pursuing photography and amateur film-making. He died of serious injuries he had suffered during the Brettschneider Villa massacre at Prague´s Zelená liška on May 9, 1945 – the last day of war.
