Czech Jews to Establish Palestine Settlement Named After Town of Lidice

A group of Czechoslovakian Jews now living in Britain today decided to raise funds to establish a settlement in Palestine named Lidice, after the Czech town which was completely destroyed by the Nazis on the charge that it had harbored the assassins of Reinhard Heydrich. Naming the settlement Lidice will commemorate not only the martyred inhabitants of that village but all the Czechoslovak victims of the Heydrich regime, the leaders of the Czech Jews declared.
