Her mother was arrested in 1950 and sentenced to a year in prison and a hefty fine for a letter in which she wanted to inform her husband that the children were all right and which was intercepted by an agent of State Security (StB). Her uncle Josef Kohout also emigrated in 1948 and her aunt Milada Kohoutová was arrested in 1949, accused of seditious activity and sentenced to 18 years in prison, released by amnesty in 1960. They had two sons. All five practically orphaned children were cared for by her mother's parents, the Mikulášeks, who had to work hard to make a living for them all despite their considerable age.
