Witnessing the bullying of tradesmen in Jičín

“In Jičín there is this nice street called Hus Avenue – today it is pedestrian area – and we were taken there by our school teachers. I know there was a store of a tradesman and in the window, there were things that he did not report to the authorities and that were found in his cellar. There were about three rolls of a cloth, then about two sacks of flour and – what stuck in my memory – a terracotta pot with fat. We were told at school that he hid those things, did not give them to the people and in fact stole it from the people. I wanted my parents to explain this to me and they said they would explain it to me later…”
