The last inhabitants

Demolition of the settlement Hraničky

“When they were demolishing the church, stones were flying all the way down to the forest. The windows in our house were clattering, and it is quite far away. There were loud bangs. They arrived and they demolished it all during one day. But there was a dilapidated wooden cross which stood on a kind of an embankment opposite the church door. Stones from the church were flying all over the place, to the forest, too, but the cross was left unscathed and it remained standing. They later repaired it. Now, there is a kind of a metal circle placed on the spot where the church used to stand.”
