Lidice Children's Monument

Lidice Children's Monument

Stephen Searer

Lidice was once a peaceful mining town located an hour or so from Prague.  After the assasination of Nazi Reinherd Heydrich in 1942, the town was destroyed brick by brick.  Not only was it destroyed, but it's citizens were either murdered, sent to concentration camps, or adopted for re-education. 

Today, there stands a monument dedicated to the memory of the town and its former inhabitants.  There is no doubt that visitors will be moved by several the individual monuments and statues placed throughout the landscape of the former town.
