Description

In the small village in the north-eastern part of Slovakia, there is the Memorial Room of Tokajík Tragedy entitled "Fascist reprisals in Eastern Slovakia". It was built as a memory of a tragic event in the village of Tokajík.

In November 1944, German troops made a retaliatory military action here as revenge to the local population for helping the partisans. The Nazis first concentrated the men from the village near the local church and led them north of the village where they were shot.

There were 32 men killed, 2 wounded managed to survive the massacre. The following day, the village was burned and plundered and women and children were dissipated.

Compared to the Museum of Tokajík tragedy, there is a memorial dedicated to victims.
