14.6.2014, romea.cz – Czech residential hotel issues remain unresolved

All of the Czech Republic was shocked three years ago by the footage of otherwise honorable citizens marching side by side with ultra-right radicals and chanting “Gypsies to the gas chambers” in the town of Varnsdorf. Residential hotels for socially vulnerable people were the thorn in their side.

The demonstrators blamed the tenants of those facilities for increased crime and noise in the town. The exacerbated situation was calmed by riot police.

However, that does not mean the social tensions in the town of 15 000 on the Czech-German border have disappeared. New potential detonators of conflict are surfacing in Varnsdorf again.
