The aim of this short memorial is to point out a courageous act happened a few years ago. Jiří Gabriel, followed with his collaborates, succeeded editing an alphabetically arranged Slovník českých filozofů (Dictionary of Czech Philosophers), Brno 1998, including personalities representing German, Slovak (etc.) thinkers, bound to Czech lands.
