Chcebuz

Farmhouse

The little village belongs to the nearby town of Štětí. On its main square the eye is drawn to a Baroque church in whose bowels are hidden two bells. Directly opposite are the ruins of what was once a farmhouse; the remnants' soot-covered walls give the impression that there was a fire here.

What actually happened here is unlikely to occur to you. It is the location for the scene in the film Lidice in which the village was burnt down. Ordinary traces of the fire and the remains of buildings suddenly come to life. You see the flames grow ever higher until they eventually swallow up the entire structure. Roofs collapse in the blaze as fast as the lives of Lidice’s inhabitants. Yes, the horrors of Lidice were repeated in the village of Chcebuz. But this has allowed everybody to see with their own eyes just what happened in Lidice and to comprehend the atrocities of WW II.
