LIDICE 2020: Children from Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka Awarded

Children from Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka are among those awarded by the organizers of the international children's exhibition of fine arts LIDICE 2020. This exhibition was established in 1967 to commemorate the child victims from the Czech village of Lidice murdered in 1942 by German Nazis, as well as to commemorate all other children who have died in wars.


This exhibition became international in 1973 and since then it has become well-known among children and teachers not only in Czechia but literally all over the world.
