In 1996 Kirill Postovit mainly participated in sculptural symposiums in the Czech Republic. The author's personal exhibition was also held under the auspices of Jan Grim (then chairman of the cultural commission of the city of Litoměřice and an academic painter). In 1996-1997, an interview with the art historian and art critic Alexander Jevangeli was published for the yearbook "Visual Art and Eastern European Context" (Prague and Paris).

During that time, several solo exhibitions of the author took place, and he also participates in the contemporary art exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art in Tel-Aviv. This exhibition brought success and recognition, and Kirill Postovit, after its completion, was included in the list of academic artists of Israel, maintained by the State Museum of Art in Jerusalem, and invited to the Association of Artists of Israel.

In 2008, this memorial under the name "Prayer" was placed on the bank of the Ohře river in the place where the ashes of the murdered Czech Jews were thrown into the river. This memorial became a mournful dominant of the memorial square. Every year, the Kever Avot is held here to honor the Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide in the Czech lands. The management of the Terezín Memorial, representatives of the government and ministries of the Czech Republic and abroad, as well as cultural and spiritual personalities, participate in these memorial days. This memorial was ceremoniously unveiled by the former director of the Terezín National Memorial, PhDr. Jan Munk and chief regional rabbi Karol Efraim Sidon. This sculptural monument is included in the list of the main cultural monuments of the Terezín ghetto and northern Bohemia.
