My childhood was sad. The death of our father was a great loss.

Zdeňka Calábková, born as Oherová, was born in 1937 in Zákřov near Olomouc. By the end of the war, her parents were hiding a Jewish family, called Wolf. As a small child, she witnessed the Zákřov massacre. On 18th April 1945, soldiers of the 574 Cossack battalion captured 23 men accused from supporting the guerillas. Two days later, 19 of the men were executed and their bodies burnt in a cabin near Kyjanice. Her father Oldřich Ohera and Otto Wolf, who was hiding at their house, were among the victims. After the war, Zdeňka stayed at home to help her mother with the household. In 1956, she married Josef Calábek, whose father was also killed at Kyjanice.
