The Czech Jewish community is considering the creation of a Holocaust museum for Czech Jews and Roma, or gypsies. The museum would be in an unused synagogue in the town of Pisek, near the site of the former Lety concentration camp, where Roma were held before being transferred to Auschwitz where they were nearly all killed. It would take at least five years to restore the Pisek synagogue, according to the local government, which favors plan.
