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 November 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 march was banned October 4 by Prague City Hall, which said it would incite "hatred and intolerance of citizens because of their nationality, origin and religious faith."
