…the loss of Michal gives rise to deep sorrow in the whole international community, in which He was a universally acknowledged research leader and authority with very high reputation.

I will never forget Michal, great colleague and dear friend. I have in several occasions appreciated the brightness which was peculiar to Him, and also the friendly attitude He always showed to us and to me particular.
