Government hoping to buy and remove pig farm standing on site of former concentration camp|
The Czech Government is hoping to remove a controversial pig farm in South
Bohemia that stands on the site of a former concentration camp by buying it
off its owners. During WWII, over one thousand Roma were interned in the
Czech-run camp and 326 - many of them children - died under inhumane
conditions. The operation of the pig farm, which has stood on the site
since the 1970s has been criticised by many, including the European
Parliament in an April resolution against the discrimination of the Roma.
