Germans occupy Prague, 15.03.1939 this is why my father, born in Czechoslovakia, then living safely as a Canadian citizen, entered the war. He wanted to rescue those now threatened by Hitler's aim to destroy those not Aryan. We should never push aside those efforts and sacrifices although so long ago. Do we forget our freedom? Do we forget our rights? No. We must never forget.

#Prague Astronomical Clock destroyed on 8.5.1945 during the Prague upraising against the Nazi. The Old Town Town hall was a hiding place for the resistance group and was therefore targeted. The Old Town Square has never been the same since. #CzechPragueOut
