Dedicated to Alzbeta Fitmova. In 1948, when communists took power in Czechoslovakia, she was a teacher in a small remote village in current Slovakia. Government ordered all crosses/crucifixes to be removed from the classroom’s wall. However, parents met and insisted on keeping the cross, so she left it on the wall. For this she was imprisoned and kept in very harsh conditions for a gentle woman. She died soon after her release.
