Czech scouts have begun mapping the fates of scouts who died during World War II in battle, in concentration camps or in prisons, Czech Television reported on Tuesday. Within the project War Heroes they are attempting to trace their fallen predecessors’ life stories in a bid to preserve them for future generations of Czech scouts. The Nazis banned the scouts in 1940 and many of its members joined the resistance. Around 700 died in the course of the war.
