The family of the victims have released an emotional tribute in their native a Slovakian.

  • Read the full tribute

Mourning is suddenly spilling through my soul, however I have no clue how it got there,

Perhaps only knowledge poured it there, that you have left, that dying day has touched you.

So I am slowly losing you from my things, the room, your energy, the way we have known you to be like,

And I would like to let you know just for short time that I loved you, that I still like you.

So you move away, but my love flies with you up there in the sky where it shines like a star,

So you can still peek with your night eye Into people’s souls who meant so much to you.
