Lidice and Ležáky

– places of tragedies, but also places of hope and heroism.

… And the Innocent Were Guilty
On 10 June 1942 the Nazis obliterated the village of Lidice in retaliation for the assasination of Reinhard Heydrich. The site od the village is a memorial site now, the emptiness of wich reminds us of the scale of the tragedy. Familiarising oneself with the history of the village of Lidice, global symbol of war crime victims, may serve as a lesson to future generations. Prewar life in Lidice as well as war events are presented to visitors through a modern multimedia interactive display …And innocent Were Guilty in the museum and in the exhibitionhall Pod Tribunou on the premises of the memorial. The exhibition is complemented by other exhibitions in the hall in Memoriam

We Are Building a New Lidice
The initiative of Banett Stross, a fundraising campaign Lidice Shall live was launched in Stoke-on- Trent, UK, for the construction of a new Lidice in 1942. Also thank that, the new village was built to design by group of architects led by František marek after the war. The building eff orts, interior design as well as the lives of women and children who survived the war and came back are presented in the exhibition We Are Building a New Lidice mounted in the House no. 116.

Rose Garden
A symbolic connection between the old Lidice and the new on is the Rose Garden founded in 1955, again upon the initiative of barnett Stross. Containing more than 24,000 rose bushes in about 240 species, i tis one of the largest of its kind in the world.

Ležáky, the Village That Was Not Silent
The Ležáky memorial commemorates the heroism of ordinary people and their involvment in the resistance movement against Nazism. During WWII, this former stonecutters‘ hamlet served as a hiding place for the paratrooper unit Silver A sent from London with the radio station Libuše. After the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the hamlet of Ležáky was burnt down on 24 June 1942, the houses razed to the groundand their inhabitants executed at the Pardubice fi ring range. The only survivors were two little girls, the sisters Šťulík, who were selected for re-education. The tour includes the museum exhibition Ležáky, the Village That Was Not Silent, the Mini Galerry and the memorial site.
