To live in honour, decency, humility, and to have a clean conscience
Marie Čondlová, née Reindlová, was born on 10 April 1928 in Lišov, South Bohemia, into the family of master cabinetmaker František Reindl, the founder of a modern furniture factory and the mayor of the town. She attended lower and upper primary school in Lišov. During the German occupation she experienced several house inspections because of reports lodged against her father. In May 1945 Lišov was liberated by the Red Army. The first Americans came to Volyně, where the witness was studying. In 1947-1949 she trained at the Master School of Cabinetmaking in České Budějovice. She participated in the last All-Sokol Rally in Prague in 1948. Her father’s company was nationalised after the Communist came to power. So Marie worked as a labourer in the newly established firm Jitona. In 1950 she married; she was on maternity leave and at home until 1953. From 1953 she worked at the South Bohemian Wood Works in České Budějovice and also at the furniture cooperative in Lišov. In 1967 she and her husband moved to Prague; she was employed as a warehouse worker at the Central Bohemian Wood Works. She now (in 2016) lives in her flat in Prague 4.
