The basic idea of the project is: "From totalitarian regimes to a peaceful and democratic Europe." It emphasizes the principle of "non-violence".

As a result of Russia's aggressive war against Ukraine, the TOTAL PEACE project took on a new dimension this year. The participants commented on the current situation. Each participating organization then prepared its opinion. Read our opinion on the topic:
This year, the 6th year of this festival is taking place with the subtext "Not Expired - Modern History by Music, Word and Image". Concerts, exhibitions, discussions and lectures are held throughout the year. Many important musicians have already performed at the festival, the compositions of important composers are heard and many celebrities have spoken. At the beginning, we formulated the idea of this project as follows: "Freedom and democracy are not self-evident. There are still those who want to gain the unjustified power to decide the fates of others. There are demagogues offering unattainableand authoritarian leaders with a desire "to rule with a firm hand for the good of us all". HRADECKÝ MEMORIÁL recalls by the attractive form of historical experience and the fragility of democracy. How up to date today!
