Lidice Lives: Healing a Nazi Massacre (Travel Photo Art #24) (Paperback)
Lidice, a village in what is now the Czech Republic, could not be wiped away.
After SS officer Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated, Lidice was targeted in a cruel reprisal. Hundreds died and the village was razed. Nothing remained until a handful of survivors rebuilt their beloved village a few miles away.
The site of the original village, roughly twenty minutes from Prague, is a monument to the 340 murdered individuals. A bronze statue representing the 82 children who died stands on an empty field. An award-winning garden nurtures more than 24,000 rose bushes.
Honor the memory of these innocents with text combined with photos that prove Lidice Lives: Healing a Nazi Massacre (a Travel Photo Art book).
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, passport sized productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.
This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.
