Mr & Mrs Jiri Fiedler z"l

the MST is devastated to have received the following news via Helen Epstein:

"I have just learned that Jiri Fiedler, former Director of Research at the Prague Jewish Museum and a great friend to many of us (he was instrumental in helping me research Where She Came From: A Daughter's Search for her Mother's History) was killed at his home this past month. The funeral is next week in Prague. I will forward more information if I receive it and would ask you on the list to do the same. He was a wonderful man. May his memory and that of his wife who died with him, be a blessing."
The book in this photograph is the only one in the MST office that remains always on the desk, ready to help us answer myriad queries about Jewish life in the Czech Republic. 

Mr & Mrs Jiri Fiedler, z"l
