Nazis filmed the destruction of my village

In June 1942, the Czechoslovakian town of Lidice was destroyed by Nazi occupying forces in retaliation for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, a high ranking Nazi official.

The men of the town were killed, most of the children were sent to gas chambers and the women were sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp.

Jaroslava Sklenickova lived in Lidice at the time and survived. She spoke to Witness about the time.

Witness is a World Service radio programme of the stories of our times told by the people who were there.
