The International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice (ICEFA Lidice) was established in 1967 to commemorate the child victims of the German Nazis murdered in the Czech village of Lidice, as well as other children died in the wars.
The contest is for children between the ages 4 to 16 from schools, kindergartens, orphanages and centers of artistic development held in the Czech Republic and abroad.
