They imprisoned me, and they did not even tell me why

Zbyšek Středa was born in Hronov in 1919. He graduated specializing in aircraft construction. He got acquainted with the well-known acrobatic pilot Petr Široký in Choceň, and following his advice, he took up a job in the factory Flugzeugwerke Letov in Prague. He was in charge of construction of an office building in the German Reich, where he spent the entire WWII in the city of Dessau. He met his future wife in Hronov where he was active in amateur theatre. After the nationalization of private property in 1948, their ironmonger's shop in Rychnov nad Kněžnou was confiscated. Zbyšek was imprisoned for three years under unclear circumstances and the authorities then gave him an assignment of designing an industrial machine for production of light bulbs. He and his wife were actively involved in amateur theatre for their whole lives.
