The most satisfying is what you can build alone
Adolf Lang was born on 29 September, 1936 in Pávov near Jihlava; he had five siblings. His father was German and his mother Czech. The family owned a small farm and the father also worked in a forest. At the end of war the house was passed by the Red army soldiers and poor German prisoners were taken that way. In 1951 the Langs joined the united agricultural cooperative, but soon found out, that they are not profitable, so left again two years later. Yet they got a worse part of land and were set to give away high charges that they just could not fulfil, so had to re-join in 1957. Adolf Lang se apprenticed car painter, but since his childhood he loved agricultural machines so went to work as a tractor driver in a cooperative and later a driver for the forestry. In 1990s the family got back their land. Adolf Lang is still farming a part of them and using his collection of agricultural machines.
