June 10th 1942 - Lidice massacre


On June 10th 1942, the village Lidice near Prague is razed to the ground by German troops. All male residents over 16 were shot, the women sent to concentration camps, the children abducted. Most of them were murdered in the gas chambers of Chelmno. The death Reinhard Heydrich on the 4th of June 1942 is the background for the brutal massacre. Nine days earlier, the head of the Main Office of Reich Security and Deputy Reich Protector in Bohemia and Moravia, was assassinated. It remained the only successful assassination of a high-ranking Nazi official in Europe.
