Mr. Stanislav Volný was born on March 1st 1929 in Jinočany village in Kladno region in central Bohemia. After the end of WWII, his family moved to Tasov village near Ústi nad Labem where they obtained a farmstead. His father has been arrested in Jáchymov town prison during the 50s. Mr. Volný got married in 1950, and when his first son was born he bought his own farm house in Tasov village. Aside from working on the farm, he worked also in the chemical factory in Ústi nad Labem, which made him so-called part-time farmer. He has been arrested for short time in 1949 and in 1956. But his troubles at work and chicane by the chairman of the LPG and the local communist party culminated in 1960. Instead of going to jail again he lost his farm and was forced to move away. After this he worked mainly in the woods. Then in 1986, he was charged with seditious libel against the socialistic regime. His three sons immigrated to Sweden after this, but the youngest one returned very shortly after their escape. Mr. Stanisla Volny´s emigration appeal has been denied though and his attempt for an escape was also unsuccessful. He resides now in Ústi nad Labem and takes care of his restored property.
