Every evil and every injustice has its beginning and its end

Messenger for the resistance

“For instance, I had to go with some message to [Horní] Studénky or here in Bušín or in Písařov. Always in the dark of night, of course, and I was a thirteen- or fourteen-year-old boy. But the Písařov group never let me go home by myself. They always gave me two or three armed escorts. I was always frightened of what would happen if we met any gendarmes. But it never did. The gendarmes were mostly older blokes, and they avoided the dark and weren’t active.”
