We founded the Jan Masaryk Resistance Group
Jiří Lang was born on June 9, 1931 in Brno - Horní Heršpice to the family of Jan and Hedvika Lang. After the war, he joined the renewed scout unit, where he got the nickname Orko. A year later, he moved to the 64th homogeneous (Catholic) unit, which operated at the parish of the Minorite Church of St. Tomas in Brno. Together with his friends, officials of the division, he founded the resistance group of Jan Masaryk on March 11, 1948. Together, they assumed an early reversal and intended to enter into a possible uprising with a weapon in hand. During 1948, they ran leaflet campaigns and undertook several unsuccessful actions to acquire weapons and transmitters. For the mass production of leaflets, they stole a Cyclostyle copier from the office of the collaborating Catholic student event. In January 1949, the group was uncovered and its members arrested. In the group Čapek and others, there was Jiří Lang, then still a minor, sentenced to an unconditional sentence of two and a half years in prison and to a fine. He served the prison sentence at the Institute for Juveniles in Zámrsk. After his release, he could not continue his studies, he was employed at the Rožínka uranium mine and until his retirement he had worked as an electrician at the Academy of Sciences. He spent his old age with his wife in Brno-Horní Heršpice.
