Stoke-on-Trent Lord Mayor Chandra Kanneganti, council leader Abi Brown, councillor Cheryl Gerrard and Alan Gerrard will mark the 79th anniversary of the Lidice atrocity by unveiling the location for a friendship garden and a commemorative statue for the city. On 10 June 1942, the German army began to systematically destroy the Czech village of Lidice by executing 173 men and youths, removing the village? women to a concentration camp and taking 82 children to an extermination camp. It was the start of a year-long razing of the village which included destroying all buildings, removing the bodies from the cemetery and diverting the river. The Nazi? wrongly believed that high-ranking SS and police official Reinhard Heydrich? killer was being harboured in the village.
The atrocity touched the hearts of people in Stoke-on-Trent, led by then city councillor Sir Barnett Stross, who in September 1942 launched the ?idice Shall Live!?campaign, and with the help of local miners, raised the equivalent of ?1m to rebuild the city.
Stoke-on-Trent? connection with Lidice has remained strong, and in recent years ?idice Way?was named, as a road between the City Centre Bus Station and the city centre, and a permanent memorial next to the road was erected, made up of discs representing the tags worn by miners who raised the money. In 2017, then Lord Mayor Ross Irving was presented with a civic key to Lidice, on the 75th anniversary of the atrocity.
Alan Gerrard said The installation of Carl Payne? sculpture ?EGACY?at Morley Street will act as a magnet for likeminded communities to donate their contributions of civic art. Over time the garden will develop but the process is an end in itself because its growth should act as a catalyst to inspire other projects, for example an annual friendship festival or an annual school choir visiting Lidice to take part in the Festival of Lights. The Legacy Garden, growing as it should, should inspire, encourage and promote projects to take place in communities thousands of miles apart and encourage other communities to set up their own.
Seen with a Marquette of the statue is the sculptor Carl Payne
