Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Postcard with view of the village of Lidice Czech Republic before the massacre and afterwards with a memorial built.  Read more about the massacre at wikipedia here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lidice
This postcard has a special commorative cancel on the back and was mailed in 1953, the 10th anniversary of the atrocity.

read a book about Lidice and I can tell you it's a horrible story..

it was a reprisal for the assault and assasination of Heydrich, chief of the SD, SicherheitsDienst in Prague on 27 May 1942.
