PRAHA - small - Page Text Content

S: a year in the nature


3: the beginning...

8: a church of bones...

11: In 1278, Henry, the abbot of Sedlec, went on a diplomatic mission to the Holy Land. He returned from Jerusalem with a handful of earth which he spread over the Sedlec cemetery. With the addition of this handful o holy soil, the cemetery became famous with many desiring to be buried here. During the plague in the 14th century the cemetery expanded. In 1318 alone, 30,000 people were buried here. As a result of the overcrowding, bones from the graves were stacked around the chapel's exterior. Eventually, though, the interior of the Ossuary was decorated with the bones by a half-blind Cistercian monk in the early 1500s.

12: a family trip...

14: a trip of flattering candids...

16: up Jested we go...

20: a wall...

22: Oktoberfest...

24: Terezin prison camp... | Terezin's small fortress was originally built in the 1780s during the Habsburg monarchy. It was meant to defend Prague from attack but after it was built it became clear it could not serve that purpose. The fortress was converted into a prison and was eventually used by the Gestapo during WWII. From a swimming pool prisoners were forced to dig by hand, to a fake washroom used to trick visitors into believing the prisoners experience was spa-like, it was obvious life in Terezin would have been a terrifying experience.

28: castle Strekov...

34: Wien...

54: a very painful experience...

66: Krakow...

73: and a pair of Czech pants... oh, excuse me... | ...trousers.
