Long Description:

Depicted grey-black granite memorial plaque, dedicated to the Rakovník Jewish citizens - victims of the Nazi terror, is installed at the Town Information Centre in Rakovník main square (Jan Hus Square / Husovo námestí).

The tablet, installed at the Town's Info Centre facade in October 2008, was funded by Mrs. Hanka Pressburg nee Švarcová (living nowadays in New Zealand), native in Rakovník (see pdf in web-link). She was one of few surviving Jewish citizens of pre-WWII Rakovník. Most of town's citizens of the Jewish origin were murdered by Nazis in time of German occupation of Czechoslovakia during WWII (1939-1945).
