Prague's Jews said Wednesday they planned to gather next month to commemorate victims of a Nazi pogrom and prevent a neo-Nazi group from marching through the Czech capital's Jewish quarter. The march is scheduled to take place Nov. 10, a day after the anniversary of Kristallnacht - the 1938 night of terror when the Nazis attacked synagogues and Jewish homes and businesses throughout Germany and parts of Austria. It is organized by the Young National Democrats, which is linked to the National Resistance, a neo-Nazi group. Organizers said it was meant to protest the deployment of Czech troops in Iraq. "The representative of Prague's Jewish community are alarmed that despite all the efforts the authorities have failed to ban the neo-Nazi demonstration," community leader Frantisek Banyai said in a statement Wednesday. Prague officials have pledged to do all they can to find legal ways to ban the march.
