Lidice should be in our collective memory. Such a terrifying view on a horrofic fact from history. There is not much to see, which leaves more to your imagination. The staff is very happy to help you out and answer questions. Mostly: just walk around and contemplate!
I spend a lot of time in museums and at memorials, and this site is a highlight for its excellent curation and moving discussion of events that transpired during WWII. I was impressed with how well the created a museum around the few remaining artifacts from the Nazi annihilation of Lidice. I visited several years ago (NB: the available dates... 更多
Decimated by the Nazis in response to the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich. Every trace of this place's existence was removed. It was daunting to see a see through screen that had the town that once stood printed into glass. You can see the outline of the town that once was bustling with life and a home for families, now gone.... 更多

I knew about this place because of what I read in history books. The connection between the failed attempt on the Butcher of Prague and the Parachutist is significant. Before coming here, I suggest read about Heydrich, Kubis and Gabcik. Visit the church of Methodius and St. Cyril in Prague and then come here; only 20 minutes from Prague. Bring... 更多
This is a little known village outside of Czeck but it was decimated in retribution for the assissination of SS Heindrich Reinhard. Because they thought one of the assassins were from there. All the men 15 and over were shot, children wrenched from their mothers arms, 88 of the children were gassed some were sent to concentration camps a few... 更多
We decided to visit Lidice on the way to the airport (it's only 15 mins away). This is the site of the original town razed by The Nazis in retribution for the assassination of Heidrich in Prague. The museum does a great job with a very contemporary presentation of the events in Lidice. There's also a very touching monument to... 更多
The site the old village of Lidice, removed from the face of the Earth in 1942, is commemorated in a brutalist museum. Take time to walk around what remains of the village and visit the group of bronze children. For balance walk through the rose gardens to the new village with its impressive art gallery.
For me this was the second time in Lidice, the first time with the new museum. Lidice is one of the villages the Germans totally destroyed during WWII. This one after the assassination of Richard Heydrich in Prague as a reprisal. Lidice was choosen because some of the civilians living there would have helped the people during operation Anthropoid, which... 更多
There is not much here, but... what is there will make you shed a tear or two and you really will feel the ghosts of the past especially when you go past some of the monuments, especially that of the children. If you're coming here, you most likely know the history of how the Germans wiped out the city in... 更多
