Place of remembrance opening at Prague faculty hit by mass shooting

A place of remembrance will be opened on Friday in part of the fourth floor of Charles University’s main Faculty of Arts building in Prague, scene of some of the worst violence and damage during a mass shooting in December.

The floor has been closed since the attack by a lone gunman that left 14 dead. It is set to reopen completely at the turn of October, when the next academic year begins, university officials said.

December’s incident was the worst mass shooting in the modern history of Czechia.
