  • "We walked a little further and I say, you know what, I do not know how it's possible, but I received a letter today, and the letter was opened. They said that such was send to me. And I said: You shall know that, I have one head and I'm ready to sacrifice it to say that such a letter was not mailed to me. You always said that we are a free citizen, so why are you opening letters? We know that only the once to prisoners are being oppened, but when you have the right, apply anew and possibly write censored there. Well, of course it was an insult. In the morning he called provincial deputy. Well, sister went Ambrózia one sister superior and she soon couldn't sleep the whole night that Klaudia told her that she should open letter, Ambrose says, I'm surprised, but I ask you nicely, almost two weeks went that letter from Bratislava, from my nephew. Well, I was surprised I said. Well, she did not sleep all night. When she, sister Klaudia was daring, so we must take action. But she was not. When I said that, they knew what they where dealing with. Well then they wanted to talk to me in the office."

  • "But on one fine day he sent a janitor, that I do not have to bother to come to school. And I, at first, said thanks to the janitor who immediately dropped tears. For this, I thought something is wrong. So I went to the chapel, where I cried, then I went to Reverend Mother, I say that I do not know what it is, but the headmaster sent the janitor that I do not have to bother to school. She said she could go there in the afternoon to ask what it is if I'm not comfortable. Well I said, if I've done something wrong, so I have to endure, and if it's not, it's against the church. It's clear. Well, then I say it, but I would beg to go with me, so that I have witness. So we went. Sister went with me and we came there, so I just called the janitor, I said that Mr. Director for a moment in the corridor and I immediately wanted to arrange that. Headmaster just what I wanted, that if I've done something. "No sister, I was very happy, I was happy when you were here." He said that never he had to worry about that class if I have had an hour. But he said that there was a new regulation."
