Lithuanian Cities to Host 'Immortal Regiment' Marches on May 9
PRAGUE (Sputnik) — The event to mark 71 years since the republic’s liberation from Nazi occupation during World War II has been organized together with a Czech association of war veterans and multiple civil rights groups.

"The first march of the ‘Immortal Regiment’ will be held on May 8 close to the Prague Castle, the official residence of the Czech president," a member of the Civic Association for the European Multicultural Society (OSEMS) said.

Similar marches will be held on May 8 and 9 in former Soviet republics and across Europe, as well as in at least nine US cities, including New York City and San Francisco.
