A street in Prague will be named after a Czech Holocaust victim. The Prague City Council last Friday announced the honor for Petr Ginz, who died in Auschwitz at age 16. One of Ginz’s drawings, made in Czechoslovakia’s Terezin transit camp, called “Moon Landscape,” received international attention after a replica of it was taken by Israeli astronaut Col. Ilan Ramon on the ill-fated Columbia space shuttle in 2003.
