IN MEMORY OF LIDICE
A VILLAGE IN
CZECHOSLOVAKIA
June 10, 1942
The village of Lidice was razed to the ground by the Nazi Gestapo. 173 men perished to avenge the murder of the sadistic "protector" of occupied Czechoslovakia. The Gestapo dragged the inhabitants of Lidice from their homes, shot all men over sixteen and condemned all women and children to a living death in concentration camps.
The memorial is located at a community park at the intersection of Fifield Street and Ash Street, Phillips, Wisconsin 54555.
