What is and what is not a war? Why has it been a part of human life since the ancient times? What are its causes, motives, and forms? During the lectured programme to the "Faces of War” exhibition, you will learn about war as a part of the lives of all of us on the planet through various exhibition objects. You will learn why it is important to study this phenomenon, how to think about war and how to understand it.

At the end of the lectured programme, we also included a reflection on the current events in Ukraine. The discussion with students is focused mainly on the responses to the war in the public and media space, not on the causes, course, and consequences of the war themselves. Based on the visual material, students comment on current events and moods not only within the Czech society, but also on a global scale. They also have the opportunity to ask questions and express their own opinions, thoughts, but also concerns. As a part of the discussion, we will explain and make sure the pupils understand the concepts of solidarity, tolerance and respect on the one hand, and xenophobia and ostracism on the other.

Reservation of the programme must always be confirmed in writing by e-mail, a reservation over the phone is not enough. Without a written confirmation, the reservation will not be taken into account.
