Those who were executed, deported and tortured in World War II must not be forgotten in the new millennium, Czech President Vaclav Havel said Sunday at the National Cemetery in Terezin. “I would like to pay my deep respects to the memory of all those who risked their lives in the struggle against Nazism, who fell in this great struggle for the protection of humanism, who were executed or tortured, and who have not lived to see today,” Havel said. Havel was speaking at a ceremony remembering Nazi victims from the former Terezin ghetto and the nearby Litomerice concentration camp.
