Czech village children visit Stoke-on-Trent
Children from a Czech Republic village destroyed during Word War II are visiting Stoke-on-Trent to learn about the man who helped rebuild their home.
The massacre at Lidice in 1942 was ordered by Hitler following the assassination of one of his generals.
Sir Barnett Stross, a former councillor, led the Lidice Shall Live campaign to raise money for the village.
Children from Bustehrad School are in Stoke-on-trent until Thursday.
Mr Stross, along with local miners and other workers, raised what would now be £1m to help construct a new village after hearing what had happened to it.
