Terezin — a “must” visit to a “never” site   2 comments

 

Terezin — located close to Prague — was a clearance camp for those destined to death at the hands of the Nazis of WW2. It serves as a bitter reminder of how cruel people can be to each other.Prague,Smr14b 158 Prague,Smr14b 228 Prague,Smr14b 283

Thousands of names   Leave a comment

 

Prague was hard-hit by the Nazi invaders of World War II because of the high percentage of Jews who lived there. These walls (and there are MANY more) show the names of those who never returned from concentration camps. The red name indicates the surname, followed by the given names of those who were lost. A somber sight, indeed.

Young lady on the way to a performance in Prague. I’d say it is a cello.

Communist Memories   Leave a comment

Prague  963

 

Czechoslovakia was a communist state for forty years, but the populace did not seem to be endeared to the government. This poster was one of more than 20 on a large poster wall.

Prague  1007

 

In the Central Library of Prague, there stands a large hollow column of books. If you look down or up it appears to go infinitely (through mirrors, of course!)

Prague  884

 

In Prague, nothing says it better than a store named “Fashion.” ¬†Except for a little more graffiti added on.
