Lidice shall live!
The village of Lidice, Czechoslovakia was the location of a massacre committed by Nazi-Germans, as revenge for the assassination of Nazi deputy Reichsprotektor, Reinhard Heydrich.
The village was then set on fire and the remains of the buildings were bulldozed, destroying every last remaining piece of evidence.
Coal miners in Stoke-on-Trent in Great Britain founded the organization "Lidice Shall Live" to raise funds for the rebuilding of the village after the war.
