The Lidice Memorial is located at the site where the old village of Lidice was located until 1942, where the village was totally destroyed by the German SS as retaliation for the killing of the German Deputy Reich-Protector Reinhard Heydrich. All of the men from Lidice were killed at the site. The women and children were transported to German concentration camps and slave factories. Most of the were later killed by the Germans. Today the few remains of the old village has been made into memorial and a new village of Lidice has been build next to the old village.
