Another 100 names of victims of the former Terezin Ghetto near Prague were read aloud at an annual ceremony in the Terezin Memorial. A total of 35,000 Jews died at the camp, also known as Theresienstadt, between 1941 and 1945, largely as a result of poor living conditions. Each year since 1991, 100 names have been read out on Holocaust Remembrance Day to pay homage to those who died.
