Children of Lidice

Takes away your breath:

On July 2, 1942, most of the children of lidice, a small village in what was then czechoslovakia, were handed over to the office of the gestapo of łódź. These 82 children were then transported to the extermination camp of chelmno, 70 kilometers from there. Once they arrived on site, they were gassed to death. This remarkable sculpture by Marie Uchytilová commemorates this massacre.
