Above: The street known as 10.Cervna 1942 (June 10, 1942) is lined with linden (lipa) trees and spans the quarter-mile distance between Galerie Lidice and the Memorial Museum. These two buildings flank the memorial rose garden and the new village of Lidice, built in large part due to the efforts of the “Lidice Shall Live” campaign begun in 1942 by Sir Barnett Stross and the town of Stoke-on-Trent, England. Linden is the national tree of Czech Republic and figures prominently in Slavic literature and art. Photo by Thomas Clark.
