A travelling exhibition of photographs by leading Ukrainian war photographers, has currently opened on the premises of the Červený kostel church in Olomouc. The collection includes the winner of the 2022 World Press Photo Award.

The collection of photographs is a glimpse into the reality of present day Ukraine, bringing powerful testimony about the hardships of ordinary people and their struggle for freedom. At the centre of attention is the photo that won the main World Press Photo Award –showing rescue workers carrying an injured, pregnant woman on a stretcher out of a bombed-out hospital in Mariupol. Her baby was stillborn. Soon after, she too died. The exhibition’s curator Igor Malijevský says it is the most moving picture there.
