Everything a man knows can help him

Branislav Tvarožek was born on December 1, 1925 in the village of Lok near Levice. As a child he learned three languages, Slovak, Hungarian and German. Speaking German actually saved his life in the period of uprising as well as during the last years of the war. In 1944 he joined the Slovak National Uprising as a member of the university students' guarding division, where he met general Golian and general Viest. After the suppression of the uprising, he was taken captive by the Germans; however, he managed to escape a bit later. After returning home he joined the civil resistance along with his father and together they used to help partisans near the town of Nové Mesto nad Váhom. After the communist takeover he was convicted and sent to Jáchymov, where he served his five-year sentence. He mostly worked in an electrician's shop. After being released from prison, he returned home and worked as an electrician.
