This is one of the letters that Mr. Bachnar got from his students from the Novaky labor camp during the Slovak National Uprising. Letter No. 1: Dear Mr. Principal. We've learned with great pleasure, that you have thank God returned alive and well from a second tough battle. We are pleased that you took our advice and have been careful. Believe us, Mr. Principal, that our most fervent hope would be to now be sitting in a warm classroom in the 3rd bldg. and be listening to your lessons. Just keep on like you have! Vera, Boza.
