(en) Czech, AFED: Piety at the end of the war - Report on actions commemorating the fight against fascism and the end of World War II

Date Mon, 18 May 2020 10:15:33 +0300

Despite the coronavirus passivity given the need not to meet in large numbers, there were a few reverential reminders of the end of World War II, the victims of fascist ideology and the defeat of the armed forces of the Nazi Third Reich. ---- Prague ---- On May 5, Collective 115, operating in Prague, set out to honor the memory of the fallen during the Prague Uprising, which erupted just 75 years ago. At that time, over 30,000 Praguers took part in the direct fight against fascism, another 100,000 helped in the construction of barricades, the treatment of the wounded, etc. Several thousand of them lost their lives. ---- At the monuments to the Kobyliska shooting range and under the Barricade Bridge, anti-fascists laid flowers and lit candles with anti-fascist symbolism. In a short statement, the collective stated: "Anti-fascism is definitely not a historical episode for us. Fascism did not disappear from the world with the defeat of Hitler's Germany. The fight against it is necessary as long as any form of oppression and exploitation persists. "


On May 8, 1945, Nazi Germany capitulated under pressure from the liberation actions of Allied troops. Among them was the Red Army, which lost 144,000 troops during the liberation of Czechoslovakia alone, although since the time of the regime change in the course of its merit compared to the previous mandatory regime glorification has been downplayed. Nazi concentration camps were also liberated with individual towns and villages. One of them was the concentration, internment and labor camp in Rýnovice near Jablonec nad Nisou, in which "prisoners of war from France, the Soviet Union and Italy, totally deployed women and men from Ukraine, Poland and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia" (more HERE ). At the end of the war, the Nazis also imprisoned Jewish women there. Probably 950 people passed through the camp, of which at least 594 died.

On the anniversary of the end of the war, activists from the Liberec Libereds collective paid tribute to the memory of anti-fascist fighters and all victims of Nazism with an anti-fascist battalion at the memorial, which is located on the site of a mass grave.
