History: Seventy years after its destruction by Nazi troops, a memorial statue honoring President Woodrow Wilson returned to its original location on Oct. 5, 2011 in Prague, Czech Republic by the American Friends of the Czech Republic (AFoCR). The Wilson Monument commemorates the role that the former U.S. president played in helping the Czech people achieve independence in 1918, and it will stand as an enduring symbol of the historic friendship between the United States and Czech Republic.
