PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: Picture taken 11 December 2003 in Prauge of the memorial wall dedicated to the former Beatle musician John Lennon, near the Kampa island, on the Moldau river in Prague. Lennon was assassinated in 1980 outside the building where he lived with his wife. The "John Lennon Peace Wall" stands in a quiet square amidst the baroque architecture of Prague's diplomatic quarter. Though Lennon never visited the Bohemian capital, he was a pacifist hero for the Czech subculture during the totalitarian era. In the decade following the collapse of Communism, the Lennon Wall came to represent not only a memorial to Lennon and his ideas, but also a monument to free speech and the non-violent rebellion of Czech youth against the repressions of neo-Stalinism. Shortly after Lennon's death in 1980, under the ever watchful eyes of the Communist secret police, an anonymous group of Prague youth set up a mock grave for the ex-Beatle AFP PHOTO: MAFA - NGUYEN PHUONG THAO (Photo credit should read NGUYEN PHUONG THAO/AFP/Getty Images)
