The City of Prague will return pave stones from the city centre, which were made from Jewish tombstones under the former communist regime, to the Jewish Community, Prague councillors agreed on Monday. The City of Prague, the Prague Technical Road Administration and the Jewish Community are to sign a memorandum about it. The Jewish community plans to place the stones at the Prague-Zizkov Jewish Cemetery. It said the pave stones are in the Wenceslas Square and the Na Prikope and 28 rijna streets that lead from the lower part of the square. These pave stones were probably made of tombstones cut to pieces that were taken from Udlice, north Bohemia, and other Jewish cemeteries.
