Mária Matejčíková (1931)

They said they were taking me for half an hour, but in the end I got five years

Mária Matejčíková was born on March 26, 1931 in Banská Štiavnica. She graduated from the secondary school in 1948 and shortly after she began working at the Ministry of Technology in Bratislava. In 1951 the State Security arrested her mother since she provided hiding to a Catholic priest, who attempted to emigrate abroad. Mária was afraid of arresting as well and this she decided to leave her job at the Ministry. She found a job at the electro-assembly company. However, in 1952 she was put on remand, accused of high treason, and finally she was sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment. She was released yet after serving half of her sentence. In the beginning of 1960s she got married to Alexander Matejčík, a former chairman of the Democratic Party Youth Organization and a former political prisoner. During the red-letter year 1968 as well as after the fall of the communist regime Mária was engaged in rehabilitations of political prisoners and other unjustly sentenced people.arrows
