Living in Prague makes it easy to forget our communist past…the streets are clean, most of the buildings are renovated, life is good…for the most part…
On Saturday we visited the northern part of Bohemia, near the German border. Beautiful part of my country. Germans and Czechs used to live here side by side ..then came the WWII.And then came the communists. And everything changed…the region is still beautiful, but is is a sad , hear breaking beauty…15 gothic churches were completely demolished by the communist alone in this small region… And the remaining churches were often used as store houses or stables. It will take a long time to heal the wounds
