About the Czechoslovak State School.

Between 1943 and 1945, the Czechoslovak government created a secondary school for refugees at the Abernant Lake Hotel in Llanwrtyd Wells. Around 140 pupils, mostly from Jewish backgrounds, were taught at the Czechoslovak State School.

Lessons at the school were in Czech and all expenses (including the teachers' salaries and children's board) were paid for by the Czechoslovak government-in-exile.
