Ambassador Tomášová emphasized during the ceremony the importance of this competition that lies in bringing children around the world together to express their impressions by paintings which are then exposed in the Lidice memorial. The city of Lidice was destroyed during the Second World War by Nazi Troops in reaction to the assassination of German Nazi Protector Heydrich.
