Czechs unveil statue of Woodrow Wilson in Prague
Prague: A statue to honor former US President Woodrow Wilson has been unveiled in the Czech capital again, nearly 70 years after Nazi`s destroyed the first one.
The original statue of Wilson was erected in front of Prague`s Central Station in 1928. It was destroyed by the Nazis in 1941, following their occupation of Czechoslovakia.
The statue was erected to thank Wilson for his contribution to the creation of independent Czechoslovakia in 1918 following the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian empire.
President Vaclav Klaus said the statue is "a symbol of friendship between the United States and the Czech Republic" during a Wednesday ceremony attended also by his predecessor Vaclav Havel and former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
