Several people were badly shaken when a loud explosion interrupted a ceremony commemorating the first transport of 1,000 Jewish women from the Slovak town of Poprad to Nazi concentration camps in March 1942. Slovak police said they believed fireworks had been ignited next to the town’s former synagogue, where the ceremony was held.
