Sir Roger was honored on December 3 in London with the Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary, and last month, in Prague, he received the Medal of the Czech Senate for his work alongside Czech dissenters behind the Iron Curtain. (He also received the Czech Republic’s Medal of Merit from President Václav Havel in 1998.)
