Centenary of Marie Kudeříková

Today we commemorate the 100th anniversary of birth of Marie Kudeříková. A member of the anti-Nazi resistance, she was born on 24 March 1921 and executed by the Nazis on 26 March 1943. Lionised during the communist regime, she was forgotten after the revolution of 1989. The figure of Marie Kudeříková will serve as one of the major themes of our festival this year, where we will seek to commemorate her without any ideological baggage.
