Roma gather to remember victims of Lety|
On Saturday, roughly seventy members of the Roma community gathered in
Lety near Pisek, the site of a WWII concentration camp where 326 Roma
died, to remember the victims. Survivors of the camp and their families
were present, and representatives from the Slovak and German embassies
placed wreaths at the monument to the victims of the Roma Holocaust.
President Vaclav Klaus also sent a memorial wreath.
A controversial pig farm which occupies part of the land of the former
WWII camp is expected to be dealt with following the June elections.
