Commemorative ceremony for victims of Romany Holocaust held in Lety
16-05-2016 - Ruth Frankova

Minister for human rights and equal opportunities, Jiří Dienstbier, and Justice Minister Robert Pelikán on Friday attended a commemorative ceremony for the victims of the Romany Holocaust at the site of a former concentration camp in Lety in South Bohemia. More than 1,300 Romanies were held prisoners in the camp between 1942 and 1943. Over 300 of them died there while others were transported to Nazi extermination camps. Mr Dientsbier said that plans for relocating a large pig farm established on the site of the camp in the 1970s seemed unlikely to be carried out, since the government has failed to reach agreement with the farm’s owners.
