World War II is known to be the deadliest conflict in human history. Somewhere between 50 to 85 million people lost their lives due to the pointless, mindless war that was based on two Utopian ideologies. One of the most atrocious acts done by Nazis was the wiping out of the Lidice village located in former Czechoslovakia (now in the territory of Czech Republic).
82 children in bronze overlook the old Lidice village
All of them were killed by Nazis during the World War II
Their entire village was completely destroyed
All of the men of the village were executed, while women were taken to concentration camps
The haunting memorial was created by a Czech sculptor, Marie Uchytilova
The sculptures took two decades to finish
Now, they stand as a silent memory to those young lives lost in a cold and mindless massacre
