Brno to erect Holocaust memorial


A commission has been set up to erect a memorial to Jewish and Roma Holocaust victims from the city of Brno, in the Czech Republic.

Some 12,000 Jews and Roma, or Gypsies, from the city were killed in Nazi-run concentration camps during World War II.

The commission is currently being established by representatives of the Jewish and Roma communities, according to the Czech Press Agency. The city plans to receive designs for the memorial by the end of September,  Brno Deputy Mayor Daniel Rychnovský told the Czech Press Agency.

The memorial will be erected in 28 October Square, according to the report. There is currently no memorial to victims of the Holocaust in Brno.
