I lived for work with the children
Jiří Čechura is a son of a shoemaker and a worker from Dolany. He was born in 1933 and he grew up in the village Dolany near Pilsen when times were quite difficult, but in spite of that he likes to remember the time of his childhood. In 1942 he undertook entrance examination to the grammar school in Pilsen, and he was eventually admitted after some minor complications. In the last years of his secondary school studies he transferred to a pedagogical class for future teachers. Jiří started his teaching career in Černošín, from there he moved to Trpísty and then to Rozvadov, a small town on the border. While there, the Communist Party accused him of deliberate arson of the school building. When the true cause of the fire was discovered, the charges against him were dropped and he settled in Kladruby near Stříbro where he became a school principal. At present he is one of the important citizens and patriots of the town.
