Several hundred people gathered in the Želiv monastery on Sunday to commemorate the 464 priests and monks, who were imprisoned there under the Communist Regime. The gathering started with a mass celebrated by Cardinal Dominik Duka and abbot Jáchym Jaroslav Šimek. The Monastery in Želiv was turned into an internment camp in the 1950s. Among the people who were interned there was Cardinal František Tomášek and Archbishop Karel Otčenášek.
