Holocaust Remembrance Day will be marked this year in Prague for the first time in an open public space. The open venue for the April 25 ceremony was chosen by the Terezin (Theresienstadt) Initiative Institute so that it speaks to the entire public, not just Jews. The names of 80,000 Holocaust victims from Czech lands — 89 percent of Czechoslovakia’s Jewish population at the time — will be read at the ceremony, and their photographs will be shown.
