A monument to the Jewish victims of the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia was unveiled at the synagogue in Trnava in the presence of members of the local Jewish community and representatives of the government, including Gen. Ludvik Svoboda, Minister of Defense.

In the featured address at the ceremony, Gen. Svoboda declared that “anti-Semitism will remain the worst stain on the name of the German people.” He praised the valor of the Jews who died in the underground forces and who fought with the Czech armies in exile.
