I think that the fate of the Most area can be rightfully considered as the worst of what communists caused. It is an apocalyptic scene for anyone who has love for anything

Destruction of landscape, villages, and relationships

“They moved my grandmother's sister to Chomutov and a year later, when demolishing came to the place where my grandmother lived – and where we had lived as children, where we grew up, the place we loved the most – they moved them to Most. Not only was the landscape and this beautiful village – beautiful in every sense of the word – destroyed, communities and family relationships were also divided.”
