Two rooms in Faculty of Arts building to be places of remembrance for December shooting victims

Two rooms and a corridor connecting the two on the fourth floor of Charles University's Faculty of Arts building in Prague are to serve as places of remembrance for the victims of December's mass shooting, starting from Friday and continuing until the end of the year. The faculty management has installed commemorative stones, flowers and a piano in the rooms so visitors can express their condolences and remember those they lost.

The December 21 mass shooting last year left 14 people dead and a further 25 injured. The faculty closed for about two months after the incident. The building reopened in February, with the exception of the fourth floor, where the shooting took place.
