18th Boskovice festival ends

The 18th four day music festival at Boskovice, between Olomouc and Brno, drew to a close on Sunday. Organiser, Unijazz, estimates around 4,000 people attended the mix of musical and cultural events and exhibitions. The festival was originally held to help draw attention and restore the old Jewish quarter of the town, a task which has now been largely completed. This year’s festival featured the reading by writer Radka Denemarková of her book “Money From Hitler, ” which recounts the attempt by a woman who returns from a Nazi concentration camp to get justice.
