Details

Sculptors: Dashyline. The Czech village of Lidice was destroyed by the Nazi’s in 1942 in retaliation for the assassination of Nazi Lieutenant General and Deputy Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia Reinhard Heydrich. Hundreds of men, women and children died. The massacre inspired Stoke-on-Trent city councillor Barnett Stross to raise funds, along with local coal miners, for the rebuilding of the village.

Lidice was eventually rebuilt and the sculpture is dedicated to unearthing the story of Stoke-on-Trent’s unique relationship with the village. Miners tags cover the artwork each one stamped with a code identifying a member of the public who has promised to share the story of Lidice with two other people.
