The series Docs in Salute continued at the Library of Congress on September 19 with a showing of the documentary In the Shadow of Memory. It is a story about the ongoing effects, legacy and relevance of the tragedy in the innocent Czech village of Lidice, which was grazed to the ground by the Nazis in 1942 in retaliation for the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, the mastermind behind the Final Solution, by Czech parachutists in Prague. The Nazis killed all the men in the village and sent the women and children to concentration camps. In the film, producer Jerri Zbiral follows her mother and others, who miraculously survived, back to the site of the gruesome massacre. The producer was on hand at the event to answer many questions from a mixed audience, which included professionals from the Library of Congress and individuals interested in Judaic and related issues. The Czech Embassy donated films connected to the Lidice theme to the archives of the Library of Congress.
