A mini-documentary looking into the history of the small Czechoslovakian mining village of Lidice, which was completely massacred by Hitler's SS on June, 10, 1942.
The documentary looks at life before and after 1942, and also focuses on the key role Stoke-on-Trent MP Dr Barnett Stross and the people of Stoke-on-Trent played in the rebuilding of the village as it stands today.
