Today one knows a lot more and sees it all from a completely different perspective
Miroslav Pilík was born June 5, 1937 in the hamlet Mezný in the Sedlčany region. He experienced the end of the war and the arrival of the Red Army. After the war he decided to become a miner and for a short time he worked in the uranium mine Bytíz in the Příbram region. Then he did his basic military service during which he served in the Border Guard unit in Děčín and he was mainly in charge of logistics. While he was in the army he became a member of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. He remained in Děčín, he married and he worked in construction, but his tranquil life was interrupted by the occupation of Czechoslovakia by five armies of the Warsaw Pact in 1968. It was a difficult period for Miroslav, and he regarded the act as inconceivable treason. He was expelled from the Party during so-called normalization purges, but he continued working in the construction business until his retirement.
