If we knew about everything that would happen and who would live with whom, life would be no surprise


Jindřiška Burzičová was born June 17, 1969 in Karlovy Vary. She learnt the seamstress' trade and in 1987 she began working in the company Triumf. After the Velvet Revolution she met her husband-to-be, who was originally from Bosnia. She married him in 1991 and she moved with him to his native town of Kulen Vakuf in Bosnia. Her husband had a three-year-old daughter from his previous marriage. On July 10, 1991, Jindřiška's daughter was born in Bihać. The situation in the area grew worse after the incident in Mostar. Jindřiška attempted to leave Bosnia twice, but she never succeeded. Eventually she managed to obtain tickets with the help of the Red Cross. When they arrived to Belgrade, they had to get off, put their hands up and undergo a body search. Jindřiška then found another centre of the Red Cross in Belgrade where they helped her get tickets for travel to the Czech Republic. She lives with her daughter in Karlovy Vary.
