Dangerous hiding of people

“During the Second World War, in our house there were hidden Jews as well as some Moravians from Hodonín, who were sentenced to death penalty from political reasons. They weren´t just hiding, but my father employed them, and provided them with necessary identification papers and documents. So they worked there. I didn´t know that though. I was only a little boy – ten years old. He didn´t tell me anything about them as being Moravians or so. I just knew her name was Zuzka, another one´s Anka, and the man was called Juraj. And those weren´t their real names either.”
