They released me in a flash. In exactly two years

Antonín Otta was born in June 1928 in Brodek, Jičín District, but after World War II he and his family moved to the village of Sedlečko near Karlovy Vary, where they took up an empty house from one of the deported Germans. In 1949 he was accused of seditious activity, although he had done nothing and had never even seen his alleged colleagues in crime. Despite persistently denying all accusations he was sentenced to fifteen years of prison in Pankrác in Prague. He was taken to Jáchymov, where he spent several months. Unlike other prisoners, a supposed medical check made him exempt from mining duties. His case was reopened two years later, when he was freed and allowed to return home.
