Long Description:
The memorial is in the small park at the intersection of 17. listopadu Street and Roosevelt Street, on the place of destroyed synagogue, in Dvur Králové nad Labem, East Bohemia, Czech republic, Europe.

The Jewish community in Dvur Kralove nad Labem is recorded from the mid-19th century. The largest was in the early 20th century, when there were 332 Jews (in 1910). The synagogue, which stood at the intersection of today 17th November Street and Roosevelt Street, was built in 1890. Was used till the World War II, when it was in ruins and in 1966 was demolished. In its place is a small park, in which is the Holocaust memorial in the shape of the Star of David.

Although the memorial is on a very lively place, I think that many bussy passers-by not noticing it at all and have no idea why the monument stands on the site on which it stands.
