This week the world lost a hero. Vaclav Havel was a champion of the disenfranchised, a beacon for those who seek freedom, and a great friend to RFE/RL. In his honor, we will project this image of him on the outside of our broadcast headquarters for the offical three-day mourning period.
On behalf of the entire RFE/RL family, I would like to convey our condolences to the Havel family, the people of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and the millions of people around the world who were in some way touched and inspired by Vaclav Havel’s life.
- Steve Korn, RFE/RL President
