WWII Memorial at Hrabyne

The modern memorial of World War II is located at the scene of heavy fi ghting during the large campaign to liberate Bohemia and Moravia. The permanent exhibition depicts WWII history from the beginning to the ending of 1945 when the Ostrava Operation, launched by the 4th Ukrainian Front of the Red Army, led to heavy fighting in the area of former Czechoslovak fortifi cations. The setting is rounded with heavy war equipment and a symbolic cemetery of fallen soldiers. A separate exhibition dedicated to "Czechoslovak Pilots Fighting for Freedom, 1939-1945" presents authentic documentation of the credits that Czechoslovak pilots deserved while bravely defending France, England and many more war battlefields. The youngest section of the museum, entitled "Heliodor Píka - Life and Death of a General," is dedicated to the native of the near-by community of Štítina and one of the early victims of Communist persecution in the country. Section "Defending the SubCarpathian Ukraine, 1938 - 1939" reveals former offi cial secrets that held back the true account of Czechoslovak Army success at that time. A nice addition to the otherwise very formal memorial is a collection of model army vehicles and weaponry from WWI till date.
