Tragedy of Lidice

Today we went on our way toward Cesky Krumlov.

pic%204.jpg The first stop was at Lidice. Lidice is a village that was completely distroyed by Nazis in 1942. The children of Lidice are an interesting topic because those who were thought be more Ayrian were sent to Germany to be adopted and “Germanized” (photo left).

All men in the village were shot. The women were sent to concentration camps. The museum was very touching. I would say this is a must-see museum if you are in the Czech Republic.
