Vlastimil Bartoš was born on 24 November, 1955 in Ústí nad Orlicí. During his high school studies he became a personal driver of the bishop Fridolín Zahradník, who was a part of so called underground church. Under cover of the communal services they visited tens of priests together of an official and hidden church. Vlastimil Bartoš also cooperated at distribution of samizdat and witnessed several clandestine consecrations. Later he also printed samizdat himself; first using a primitive duplicator and then a mimeograph. In his house also came priests such as Josef Zvěřina and Václav Vacek, who organised secret theological seminars there. Based on his activities he was called in for secret police interrogation several times. During the velvet revolution he was one of the few, who distributed information on Prague demonstrations in Ústí nad Orlicí and became one of the founding members of the local cell of the Civic Forum. In 1991 Vlastimil Bartoš started his own printing house and publishing in Ústí nad Orlicí, which he has been running until today.
