Can be quite difficult to reach with local bus services but is certainly well worth a visit. The sheer inhumane treatment of the population including 83 children by the german army is difficult to understand. The memorial is well presented and tells the harrowing story of the village with images of those involved. many of whom are burried at the... More

I visited in 1998 because my great grandmother told my mom that she came from that village. Since she immigrated in 1800's I was unable to find any familial connection. But the story of that village is a reminder to the world about how evil can exist.

How to evaluate the place with such a terrible history? I can do that just if I say that the place is really memorable. You have no chance to avoid thinking about what happened and the fate of the people. Good place to visit for people interested of WW2.

We stopped here as part of our tour throughout Europe. I must say I never heard of this place before but I now have a part of my soul there. The tragedy of this little village and its 503 inhabitants began on June, 1942 a few hours after midnight. 173 Lidice men were shot in the garden of the Horak... More

Lidice should be in our collective memory. Such a terrifying view on a horrofic fact from history. There is not much to see, which leaves more to your imagination. The staff is very happy to help you out and answer questions. Mostly: just walk around and contemplate!

The beautiful rose gardens and arbors make this place bearable. This site of a village razed to the ground by the Nazis is a testament to the evil men do, but also to the spirit of endurance. Highlights include child survivor narratives and a sculpture of a desolate group of children.

I spend a lot of time in museums and at memorials, and this site is a highlight for its excellent curation and moving discussion of events that transpired during WWII. I was impressed with how well the created a museum around the few remaining artifacts from the Nazi annihilation of Lidice. I visited several years ago (NB: the available dates... More

Not far from Prague the village of Lidice is definitely wort a visit. The site remembers one of the darkest side of Nazi history during World War II.

This place, with it's 'presence of absence' is unbelievably moving. The children's memorial is incredible, with the artist recreating the dead children of Ludice individually from photographs. This place literally brought us to tears. Go, lest we forget and repeat the past.

We watched a documentary on Lidice and the children's statue just drew us here. Got a bit lost getting here by bus from Prague, and then to find museum itself closed unexpectedly was very disappointing but made our way around the grounds and stood for ages, still, in front of the saddest statue ever. Entire memorial beautifully looked after, proving... More
