The organization Libres penseurs athées / Atheist Freethinkers wishes to express to the family of Dagmar Gontard-Zelinkova our most sincere condolences on the occasion of Dagmar’s decease. Words cannot adequately express our sadness. Dagmar joined our group shortly after its foundation and remained a faithful participant in our debates up until her very last moments. She left us a final and very serene “Good Bye” only days before her death. Dagmar was a very active and diligent freethinker. Her criticism of religious anti-modernism was effective and rigorous. She defended and promoted secularism with courage and determination at a time when many around her reacted with a cowardly silence or opposition. We will remember her as a woman enthusiastically committed to the causes which she held dear and as a person of great serenity both in life and in death. Her absence from our discussions will leave a great void in our hearts and in our minds.
