Lidice Memorial Place

The former Reichsprotektor of Bohemia/Moravia and Reichssicherheitshauptamt Reinhard Heydrich died from his wounds eight days after an assassination attempt on May 27th 1942.

On 10 June 1942, German troops surrounded Lidice. All men above 15 and most of the women were executed. The remaining women and children were deported to the concentration camps. After the massacre, Lidice was destroyed by bulldozers.

After the war, Lidice was rebuilt. The spot where the old Lidice once stood is turned into a memorial site and museum.
