I was raised so that one should be interested in the environment where he lives

Věra Vohlídalová was born on 8 February, 1942 in London, where her parents sought shelter after the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. They both were very active members of the communist party, but after being expelled they moved in dissent circles. Věra studied to become a librarian and in August 1968 took part in demonstration against the occupation of Czechoslovakia. That was the reason she got kicked out of her job, which was finally cancelled as she became pregnant. In November 1989 she got hold of the videotape recording the National Avenue events and made a public screening in a hospital. Following the velvet revolution she became a library director and was in charge of the construction of a new building. She also faced criminal charges for money laundering, which was finally ceased.
