My aim in publishing these few letters is to recall bygone times, the snows of yesteryear perhaps, and to introduce Bohuslav Reynek, the man in all his integrity and honesty before life, before his neighbour and before God. I am doing this in order to ensure that his portrait, sketched against the background of a reserved friendship, cannot be forgotten and irreparably damaged. (Dagmar Halasová)
