Honza B. – We remember

Honza B.

 Czech language

Honza saved books from garbage containers and then sold them to used bookstores in Prague. He could recite poetry by heart, and knew the places where Czech artists and writers lived and created their works. He was the first poet who began writing on the Lennon Wall, and was once the creative director of a leading marketing agency. He had been living on the streets of the capital since the floods of 2002. He had succumbed to a serious illness on March 30, 2016. He will be missed.
