People helped us, but only after 1968
Jitka Bůžková was born on 2nd January, 1928 in Beranův Mlýn not far from Czech Krumlov. She studied the gymnasium in Czech Budweiser and attended gardening school in Prague; later she married Stanislav Bůžek, so called gulag from the nearby Chlumeček. In 1949-1955 the husbands were under constant pressure on the expropriation of their property by the communist regime. Mr. Bůžek was imprisoned and forced to serve at the Auxiliary Technical Troops and remained detached from the family. Jitka was left alone to take care of the farm only with her his mother. In 1955 the farm and all the property was confiscated. Jitka with her husband and two sons was ordered to resettle to Týn nad Vltavou, where they were forced to work at the state estate. They continued living there for 40 years. After 1989 their estate was returned to them based on restitutions. Today a grandson of the witness continues a family farming tradition.
