 Ivan Ruller (1926)
I could never say goodbye to my native town of Brno

Total deployment

“At the end of war we were totally deployed in Brno industry. First we were in the factory, where there were working with the lathe, and then until the end of war I was in a small factory filling up oxygen bombs, that was quite a hard work as we worked day and night there. I had a colleague from the same college and we experienced air-raids, when we ran to Cacovice, and when there was bombing, we hid under the bathtub. And it was interesting as in Brno there were no trams so I had to get up really early in the morning.”
