Plzeň is looking forward to see their liberators !
From America to Pilsen heading George Thompson, Stephen Mason , Robert Gilbert , James Duncan and Herman Geist , Belgium Michel Gilain , José Schindfessel , Louis Gihoul , Paul Jacobs, Arthur Otto and Hubert Rauw . Their presence and memories each year revive the Liberation Festival program and are among its greatest attractions . The celebration will be visited also by the grandson of General Patton, George Patton Waters, son of Colonel Charles Noble and brother of the fallen airmen Virgil Kirkham Marion .
The peak of the stay of veterans is always the very emotional meeting with the public. Joint remembering is often not without tears on both sides. This year we will be given an opportunity to listen to the memories and to thank personally greeting the veterans on Saturday, May 3, at 10 am in the Peklo community center .
