    On 10th June 1942, the calm of the early morning was broken by the Schutzpolizei squad from Halle an der Saale, who had been given the task of liquidating the men of Lidice. The victims, some 173 in number, were aged between 14 and 84 years. A further 19 men were executed six days later, at Kobylisy in Prague. Seven women died alongside their men. Below are two images of the execution wall memorial, and a period image showing the bodies left were they fell. Note the mattresses used to prevent bullet richochets.

    It was no accident that the Schutzpolizei unit involved were from Halle an der Saale, as that was the birthplace of none other than SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich, whose death, they were avenging.

    Here, although poor in quality, is a scene most disturbing. Not long after the destruction of the village and the murder of the occupants, the Nazis decided to remove all traces of Lidice, thus wiping it from the face of the Earth forever. One task was the removal of the bodies, captured here in this photograph.

    Inside the museum building, are various artifacts from the former village, though very little survived the thorough destruction of the area. Pictured here is the old village hall sign. The other image is of a large commemorative piece that displays the names of the victims.

    These final images show one of the most striking memorials I have ever seen. This genuine work of art, is a fitting tribute to the youngsters who died.

    Thanks Carl. This is something I know little about, so always keen to learn more to improve my understanding of history.

    Evil bastard . In the destruction of Lidice he recieved much more than his 'legacy' deserved. Thankfully his grave is unknown so it cannot be commemorated by revanchists.

    Thanks again for sharing your photos. I think it helps preserve the memory of the innocents! !

    The name Lidice lives on. Many people, especially in South America, give the name to their children.

    For those interested in an accurate portrayal of the events leading up to, and during the destruction of Lidice, I thoroughly recommend the movie "Lidice", starring Karel Roden, which can also be found under the title "The Fall of the Innocent". It is beautifully shot, and accompanied by a wonderful score.

    Very moving and very sad.

    Thank you for sharing these images Carl. This atrocity will never be forgotten
