JUDr. Václav  Eliáš (1929 - 2017)
When they kicked me out from the law faculty, I ran away to theatre and I became a dancer


“I had quite a lot of books and they were writing various statements for me and so when the situation changed here, I applied and I submitted those letters and then I began a distance study of law again, and they even acknowledged my previous two years of study. An interesting situation occurred, because when I started fighting for my rehabilitation, I began writing various letters and I brought the last letter there, and it stated that they considered me a rehabilitated student, and the official thus told me that since I had everything in order, I was allowed to come to the graduation ceremony... straight away... and after graduation I went to work in the brickworks in Bohunice.”
