The wounds never healed after the war

Marianne Karešová, previously Przybylska, was born in 1931 in Avion, France. She experienced the German occupation in her home town. In 1943 she and her classmates were forced to watch the execution of a group of partisans, which included three of her friends. She studied to be a nurse and worked at a pharmacy. In 1954 she met a Polish pianist, whom she later married. They had two children together. Her husband was a Communist, and he was deported back to Poland. He fell gravely ill, and so Marianne went to Poland with their children to look after him. Her husband died and Marianne did not receive permission to return to France. Her father-in-law helped her find a job in Czechoslovakia, where she was employed as the manager of girls' dormitories for the Lomnice chocolate factories. She married again in the 1980s, but her husband died soon afterwards. She now lives in a care home in Semily.
