This beautifully written remembrance of Jiri Fiedler, a researching of
Jewish heritage living in Prague, is well worth reading. "Eulogy for
a Source" in today's New York Times can be found here:

It is a reminder of all those non-Jews who have taken it upon
themselves, almost as a calling, to research our past and share their
knowledge selflessly with other researchers. In 1992 Fiedler
published his book, "Jewish Sites of Bohemia and Moravia," which is
now part of a database of Jewish heritage in the Czech Republic. He
worked as a specialist and research director at the Prague Jewish
Museum through 2012.
