Terezín Memorial to open new permanent exhibition next month

The Terezín Memorial in Central Bohemia is planning a new permanent exhibition of art created in opposition to fascism and war, its spokesman Tomáš Rieger said on Tuesday. Special emphasis will be placed on artists who were concentration camp inmates or were executed by the Nazis. The exhibition at the Terezín (Theresianstadt) camp will open on May 17. The memorial is also planning events, including a remembrance ceremony attended by senior officials, in connection with the forthcoming 70th anniversary of the end of the war.
