About this Item

Elephant folio. 8 page (incl. wrappers) special insert of the Czech weekly periodical "Svet v obrazech," commemorating the small Czech village Lidice. Wraps protected by modern mylar. Cover illustrated with a reproduction of an etching in sepia tone by Czech surrealist painter & graphic designer, Josef Liesler. Rear wrapper shows an image by Czech photographer Karel Hájek of a soldier guarding a memorial site at Lidice. On June 10, 1942 the village was completely destroyed by the members of the Ordnungspolizei and the SD (Sicherheitsdienst) in reprisal for the assassination of Deputy Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia, Reinhard Heydrich on May 27, 1942. Shortly after Heydrich's funeral, Hitler ordered that any village found to have harbored his killers was to be burned to the ground and leveled entirely. All men over 16 were to be shot, women and children are to be sent to concentration camps and children which are suitable for "Germanisation" are to be placed in SS families. The Nazis chose Lidice because its residents were suspected of harboring partisans and were falsely associated by aiding team members of "Operation Anthropoid" (code name for the assassination plot). On June 10, 1942 Hitler's orders were carried out meticulously. Interior illustrated with 20 reproductions of photographs in sepia tone showing the quaint village before, during and after its destruction. Text in Czech. Very minor age wear on wraps. All pages, incl. wraps, neatly folded in half. Very good to near fine condition. Issued to commemorate the third anniversary of the massacre. Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 34191
