The last farewell to Prof. Jan Sokol, our honorary member, took place on 24 June

Professor Jan Sokol, a well-known Czech philosopher, wikipedian and honorary member of our chapter, died after a short illness in February this year. At that time, because of the coronavirus, a memorial service was held for only a small circle of the family. The last farewell and the placing of the urn in the family grave in the Břevnov cemetery took place on 24 June 2021 and was already attended by extended family and friends. We printed a book of condolences for the Professor’s loved ones, with texts from the entire Czech Wikipedia community, which we presented to the family on this occasion. The Professor’s loved ones were very grateful for this small gift. We also made a small photo report from the last farewell.
