Matej Uličný (Zuzana's brother) joining the Slovak National Uprising (1944)

“When Veličko (Piotr Alexejevič Veličko – a partisan commander, note of ed.) came to Liptovská Kokava, firstly, of course, he visited the mayor. By this he knew immediately who returned from the battlefield. They knew everything as they had military intelligence service. My brother told him that he was done with the war for good. However, Veličko literally told him: 'I shoot you down right here if you don't join the Uprising!' This is how my brother was assigned to become an intelligence service commander.”
