I believe in human goodness
Blažej Ingr was born January 30, 1928 in Vacenovice. His family farmed on extensive farmland. Two German soldiers lived in their house during the war. The German army, which left the village at the end of the war, was replaced by soldiers from Romania; these hungry soldiers were stealing livestock from the people. After 1948, farmers began to be pressed to join the agricultural cooperative. The Ingr family did not want to surrender their large farm. When two of Blažej Ingr's brothers became arrested as sons of a kulak and sent to uranium mines, the family eventually joined the cooperative. Mr. Blažej's daughters later suffered persecution as well - they were not allowed to study and they managed to get admitted to a university only after the Velvet Revolution. Both brothers were rehabilitated at the same time as well. Blažej Ingr still lives in Vacenovice and he devotes himself to viticulture.
