gives a brief chronicle of historical facts that led to
the WWII destruction of the Village of Lidice in
Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic) and its
aftermath. The informational book is filled with
beautiful colored photographs of the known monuments which
memorialize the fallen village and its people in various
locations of the world. It also conveys something

colored rose photos are interspersed throughout the book
with information included to encourage the reader to help
the people of Lidice regenerate the Rosarium which

Garden of Friendship and Peace, seemingly limitless
varieties of roses were provided by over 30 countries of
the world. Since roses need continual care and are

garden maintenance, growth and care are ongoing projects
and extra funding is continually necessary.
