On May 17, 2016, a meeting took place at the Office of the Regional Authority of the Pilsen Region on the occasion of awarding commemorative plaques "Care of War Graves". The President of the Pilsen Region Václav Šlajs, along with the Colonel of the General Staff Eduard Stehlík and the Consul General of the Russian Federation Mikhail Ledenev, awarded 15 personages of the Pilsen Region for their exemplary and meritorious approach to care of war graves. The company PILSEN STEEL s.r.o. was among the awarded along with its two employees, who were given a plaque for having a major part in safe keeping of two memorial plates.
On the premises of Pilsen Škoda Works, 26 memorial plates were placed after World War II to commemorate names of WWII prisoners and casualties. Some of the plates have been irretrievably lost, therefore discovery of every not yet found memorial plate is so valuable.
