Thieves have stolen metal plates from a memorial at Český ráj (Bohemian Paradise) in central Bohemia to people who have died while climbing, the news website idnes.cz reported. The plates bore the names of fallen climbers from the Czech Republic and other countries, along with the dates and exact locations where they met their deaths. The Český ráj “graveyard” was created in 1970 following the deaths of several members of a Czechoslovak expedition in Peru.
