  Gypsy: From Ivan Hausner, "Good Night Storie in Black and White":

<Ervin Rosenblatt, the founder of the chess bookstore on Prague's Venceslav Square, told me once how difficult was his life during the WW2: He had to wear the yellow star of David and thus discovered much about the character of different people. When meeting Ervin on Prague streets, many a chessplayer pretended not to see and quickly crossed over to the other sidewalk. Others offered only a passing nod and quickly rushed onward. How completely different were the reactions of the chess-master Karel Prucha. He would cross over from the oposing sidewalk to greet Rosenblatt and immediately started: "Hiya Ervin, how goes it, come with me I am taking you to a lunch!" During the lunch Rosenblatt asked: "You are not bothered that I now wear the Jewish star?" And Prucha almost took an offense: "How can you think that about me? As far as I am concerned, you can have twenty such stars! What matters is that you are my friend!" Even forty years later Rosenblat remembered this incident with deep emotion; how much Prucha's stance help him back then. >
