At the Roštejn castle, hidden in a beech forest near Telč, Olga Joklová spent the best years of her life. Here, in the courtyard under a seven-sided tower, a symbolic farewell was held to this woman, probably the most famous patient in this country suffering from an incurable disease Epideromolysis bullosa (EP) called butterfly disease.
Olga Joklová (30) died after a critical deterioration in her health and organ failure on August 16 evening at home in Jihlava surrounded by her beloved.
In May this year Olga Joklová received the Olga Havel Award for her long-term activities in favour of people with EP.
