German and Czech citizens commemorating the "Usti" massacre which took place 77 years ago. On July 31, 1945 German men, women and children who lived in the town of Usti nad Labem in the north of Czechoslovakia, were attacked, beaten and thrown from the bridge into the river. The Ústí massacre (Czech: Ústecký masakr, German: Massaker von Aussig) was a lynching of ethnic Germans in Ústí nad Labem (Aussig an der Elbe), a largely ethnic German city in northern Bohemia ("Sudetenland"). During the incident, at least 43 Germans were killed.
