Ambassador Ivo Schwarz awarded the winners of the International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice 2015

The International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice (ICEFA Lidice) was established in 1967 to commemorate the child victims from the Czech village of Lidice murdered by German Nazis, as well as all other children who have died in wars.

Although national initially, this exhibition became an international one in 1973 and since then it has become well known among children and teachers in all over the world. In recent years, more than 25,000 very good works of art have come regularly by children not only from the Czech and Slovak republics but also from other 60-70 countries, including such distant ones as China, India, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka or Zimbabwe You can visit the current main exhibition at the Lidice Gallery from June through October each year.

Israeli children are regular participants in the competition and we are very pleased that this year two of them are among the winners. Czech ambassador Ivo Schwarz awarded on 12 October 2015 David Tsypris with a Medal and Itay Slonsky with an Honourable Mention. Both winners are from the Studio School of Art by Ruta Kreitser in Jerusalem.
