I had driven south from Prague about twenty miles to photograph Archduke Ferdinand’s Konopiste castle. As I approached the castle’s parking area, I noticed an American flag engraved in a grey granite monument on my right. Here is what I found. I was so glad that I still had a few small American flags.
The end of the war was less than three weeks away on May 8. How tragic. It was all so tragic.
My guess is someone brought flowers to the monument this past Memorial Day – a comforting thought.
