I am one of the few who have their full case file at home
Jiří Boháč was born in Lomnice nad Lužnicí in 1920 and graduated from a grammar school in Třeboň. He was deployed on forced labour in the Reich in 1942 (Steyr, today’s Austria). He fell sick in Steyr and came back home, and had to stay in hospital in Tábor for a month. When he recovered, he worked on the railway in Veselí nad Lužnicí where the Gestapo arrested him in the spring of 1944 for listening to foreign radio. He was sentenced to five years in prison as a member of a group of five people, three of whom were sentenced to death. He was imprisoned in České Budějovice, Terezín, Prague-Pankrác and in labour camps in Bernau, Kaisheim and Aichach. He worked on the railway from the end of the war to his retirement. He lives in Lomnice nad Lužnicí.
