Judge a person by their craft

Josef Bannert was born on the 8th of March 1947 in Heřmanovice in the Bruntál area, near the Jeseníky mountains. His mother was a Sudeten German and after the war she was forced to work at a farm estate in the Frýdek-Místek area. His father was unknown and so Josef Bannert grew up with his mother and his German grandparents’ family. In 1948 the family received an offer to move to Germany. They refused and instead they were moved to Žďár nad Sázavou. His mother married there, got Czech citizenship, and the family returned to Heřmanovice. In August 1968 Josef Bannert witnessed the invasion of the Warsaw Pact armies in the military area in Milovice. In 1975 he started working as a miner in the Zlatá Hora mines, where he witnessed the deep level mining of copper, one of the key strategic materials for socialist Czechoslovakian industry.
