Jaroslav Vodička, the chair of the Czech Freedom Fighters’ Union, said today that German President Joachim Gauch’s recent visit to the former Jewish ghetto at Terezín was a courageous step and a gesture of partnership. Hundreds of people remembered the victims of Nazism during WWII today at a commemoration ceremony in Terezín.
“We appreciate the gesture made by President Gauck. He has managed to remember the dark parts of his nation’s history, which is a testament to his high moral credit,” Vodička said in his speech.
