I promised to write the story of an olive-green rucksack for its bearer, Pepek, my friend who entrusted me with his account, sixteen pages of text, about his incredible childhood in the heart of Europe. It started as an extremely private story and to this day he refuses to talk about it in Vienna.
I made a promise to finish this story to one more person: Ivar, my husband, who was always supportive of my work. He remains my support, now from his own star.
