No one should be indifferent to what happens around him
Karel Koutský was born on March 31, 1965, in Prague. His granddad was a sociologist and psychologist Jan Souček, who signed the Charter 77 as one of the first. In 1984 he trained as a printer, then worked as a male nurse in the centre of Prague, taking care for old and sick people. He got into touch with many people who were active in the dissent. In his flat, he organized meetings of these people and screenings of films that were not officially authorized for distribution by the communist regime. He was interrogated by the Secret Police several times and asked for collaboration. He also produced samizdat copies and signed the Charter 77.
