They eventually helped me in Moravia, but in my community...

Jan Valter was born in Letiny near Klatovy on 31 October 1933. The family managed a farm of 15 hectares and ran a pub and a carting operation. After the war, the Valters lost the pub and the carting business and the father was forced to join a farming cooperative ("JZD") in the late 1950s. The witness learned the craft of farming. He served in the army in Přerov as an assistant air traffic controller at the airport tower. While in the military, he met his future wife Božena Jemelková. They married early in 1959 and lived with his parents in Šumava for a brief period. Due to labour difficulties, they eventually relocated back to Moravia and both worked in underpaid farming jobs. From 1966 the witness worked as a janitor at the Přerov farming high school and stayed there until retirement. He and his wife raised two children.
