On the plaques, passers-by can take a look at the woman, man and child whose lives changed completely on January 7 when Hamas militants invaded the land of Israel. A month ago, the flow claimed 1,400 lives, mostly civilians, and another 240 people of all ages were abducted to the Gaza Strip.
The event is not political in any way, it is for the defense of people, civilians, who were in the right place at the right time, said museum spokesman Tom Kasal.
The hunter could have thought that such a small event in Olomouc would not force the authorities to release these people. However, given that it is a worldwide event, we think that the first of these small actions will be public and that could help the people who are now in captivity, he added.
The representatives of the Olomouc Lions club turned to the museum with the idea of a plastered plaque. Originally, they were supposed to appear on the fence adjacent to the museum, but in the end, it was decided to connect the large-scale display of the cafe’s deposits to this initiative.
Plaques were torn down in Prague
The plaques depict current prisoners of the radical Hamas movement in their two different life situations, with their names and ages.
Personally, I think it was an effort to show support for Israel. I went to the Lions club with it and they agreed with it one hundred percent, said the initiator of the idea and one of the lions of the club, Tom Mecka.
Placards were pasted by Germans and passers-by about the roles in the happening. With this step, the organizers refer to the worldwide initiatives Bring Them Home and Kidnapped From Israel. Keep in mind that the plaques can be torn down by people who have a pro-Palestinian view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
This happened, for example, in Prague, where the plaques first appeared next to the Pinkas Synagogue, but also in other places in the capital.
