Günter Götz was born on October 30, 1938 in Lößnitz in Saxony.Just before Günter´s secondary school graduation his father left to visit his uncle in the western Germany and ended up staying abroad. The family decided to follow and Günter was the first to go and meet his dad.At school he excused himself to his aunt´s visit and carrying only a plastic bag he set off to travel to the former BRD. In Berlin he managed to escape attention of the guards, he exchanged money and flew to Hannover, from where he travelled to his father without any trouble. The mother and his sister followed the same way immediately as they learnt that Günter arrived all right. Only a week after the decision was made to follow the father the whole family was reunited again in BRD. Despite many difference in education system and school subjects Günter managed to finish the secondary school with success and began working as a tax inspector. He moved to the Czech Republic in 2001.
