You can’t reason with the Communists

František Lesák was born on 24 March 1922 in Prague to underage parents. He was placed in an orphanage after birth and only given back to his parents when they came of age. The same fate met his two-years-younger sister. He trained as a pharmacist and worked in the profession until he was assigned to forced labour at Ruzyně Airport during World War II. During the Prague Uprising he founded a temporary sickbay for the ill and wounded in Břevnov. He visited patients all over Prague. After the war he moved to Děčín, where he managed a drug store. He established a successful sports club. He tried his hand at several jobs and professions. He refused to join the Communist Party and changed positions frequently. His son died under unexplained circumstances, apparently following a clash with a member of Public Security (the police).
