Holocaust victims will have new retirement home in Prague

The construction of the new retirement home has started this July. It should take approximately one and a half years before the home can welcome the first of its sixty clients. The construction may be delayed, though. The potential cause of the time-delay may be the problems with the past of the company, which received the commission for the construction.

The home is being built by Hochtief VSB – a Czech company founded after the second World War. Nevertheless, a couple of years ago the company became a Czech branch of the largest German construction company Hochtief. This firm reportedly took part in Nazi building projects during the war. This is by some seen as unacceptable given what the future clients experienced during the second World War.
