Just like last year, the Terezin Memorial sent no invitations to Russia and Belarus officials to attend the annual event held on the third Sunday of May.
The 200-year-old fortress town of Terezín was transformed by the Nazis into a camp where Jews from across Europe were massed until they could be transported to extermination camps. Over 150,000 prisoners entered its gates. 35,000 died there of stress, hunger and atrocious living conditions.
