Terezin Memorial Meeting influenced by 'Bronze Names Theft'

About one thousands visitors have gathered at the National cemetery at Terezin, to commemorate all the victims, who went through Terezin ghetto and the local Gestapo prison. Terezin memorial meeting took place for the 61th time. This year was different, though; at many graves, there are those small bronze plates with names on missing.

The sculpturer and restorer Oldrich Hejtamnek makes new plates for free. The employees of Terezin memorial have glued the first new 115 tags from resin. Compared to the traditional bronze ones they shouldn’t attract metal thieves. The whole memorial should be in good order probably after as much as summer vacations.
