I wasn’t aware of the sad history of this town when I visited, but my history-buff friend told me later that during World War II, Praha had the distinction of being the U.S. town with the largest ratio of war deaths to residents. The largest number of these deaths occurred in 1944.
This piece says it best – In the space of 12 months and nine days, Praha gave up most of its youth — and nearly all of its future — to confront unimaginable forms of evil on faraway continents.
