Czechs here, there and everywhere / Cesi za kazdym rohem

Herz Summer / collarcitybrownstone.comMy Czech antenna has been very active in the last couple of days. First of all, you have got to read a story of the oldest known Holocaust survivor, Alice Herz-Sommer from Prague,  who passed away about a week ago at the age of 110. Amazing story (click here)!
 imageAND, reading about yesterday’s 6.9 magnitude earthquake in Northern California, I could not help myself but linger above the name JANA PURSLEY, which is the geophysicist with the National Earthquake Information Center. I googled her name and – lookie here – she is Czech! Not sure if she is known in the Czech Republic since Europe is kind of earthquake free but she sure is all over the news here!

    What a beautiful story, about Alice. The neighbors taking her things and her comment that the Nazi was the only human, that made me sad. But her ability to find refuge during horror in music, what a blessing.
