We were young, we shook off everything
Zdeňka Štýblová was born on 29 October 1930. She lived with her family in Velké Němčice and was in contact with a Jewish family. In April 1945, Zdeňka and her family were moved from Velké Němčice together with other residents to Hustopeče because of the movement of Marshal Malinovsky‘s regiment. Their house was burnt down during the bombing of Velké Němčice. The family was left without any resources and was given the opportunity to take the house of the expelled Germans in nearby Starovice. Her future husband Karel (*1926) also moved to this village and it was here that they met after the war. They were married in 1950 and lived their whole lives in Starovice. They raised five children.
