The Liberation Day

In Life on May 8, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka

Today is another national holiday: May 8 is celebrated as the Liberation Day on which Czechoslovakia was liberated from the Nazi Germany by the Russian Red Army as well as by the U.S. Third Army led by General Patton. No celebrations are taking place with the exceptions of the town of Plzen which is the most famous town to be liberated by Americans. As the rest of the country [generally speaking] was liberated by the Russians who “came again” in 1968 and had occupied Czechoslovakia until 1989, people don’t really feel like it.

So it is a great day for outdoor activities…

Like, taking the kids for a walk… but try to take a walk with this
