Czech TV series causes uproar, depicting life under Nazi occupation

It portrays the living conditions during WWII

A new series in the Czech state-owned TV channel is causing an uproar. The show portrays living conditions and dangers experienced by many people during the Nazi occupation.


In the summer of 2014 and over a course of two months, seven members of three generations of a Czech family lived a life of a different era.


The first of a total of eight episodes was broadcast on Saturday. It is inspired by other series such as the BBC’s “Wartime Farm”.


The criticism and reactions were rapid and strong. The Times of Israel newspaper wrote that “thankfully, the family won’t be treated like the 82,309 Jews living in the protectorate and were sent to death camps by Nazis”.
