When I went out of school and saw that there was a green car at the house, I never went home
Marie Dočkalová was born on 13 April 1936 in Želechovice nad Dřevnicí in the Zlín region. With her parents Bohumil Bobál (* 1908 in Lužkovice) and Marie, nee Kubínová (* 1911 in Horní Lhota), and her older sister Bohumila she grew up in a house in Želechovice. During World War II, his father joined the anti-Nazi resistance and was arrested after the Heydrichade. He spent the custody in Uherské Hradiště and Kounic dormitory in Brno. There was also a trial, following which he was sent to the labor camp in Breslau for three years. His father survived the death march and was liberated by the Red Army at KT Sachsenhausen. Since Marie had been interested in everything that her father’s home joinery workshop had been hiding since childhood, she started teaching.
