Čestmír Vaško (1935)

President Reagan claimed that communism was a historical mistake of mankind. And this is still true.

 

Čestmír Vaško was born in 1935 in Krouna, near Hlinsko. In the 1950s and 1960s, he was the chairman of agricultural cooperatives in Dorohostov and Hnátnice. In 1970, he emigrated to Stuttgart, West Germany, where he worked as a draftsman for the Civilian Labour Group in the US Army. More than five years later, he returned to Czecholslovakia but was detained within two months of his return. He was eventually charged by the military court and sentenced for the criminal offence of serving in a foreign army and deliberately leaving the country. He served the full sentence of four and a half years in prisons in Pilsen-Bory and Mírov. In 1985, his oldest son Čestmír escaped to West Germany hidden in a cargo truck. Presently, he lives in his native village of Krouna.arrows
