Whatever the situation, one had to go on.
Jaroslav Hlubůček was born on February 10, 1929 to a business family as the third of four children. Father Jaroslav and mother Marie led their children to diligence and sports activities. His father ran a prosperous glass factory in Železný Brod and wanted his son Jaroslav to continue in his footsteps. Jaroslav, as a six-year-old schoolboy, welcomed Edvard Beneš in his hometown in 1935. In 1943 he had to leave grammar school in Turnov and was called to total deployment in the place of residence, where he cleaned military uniforms. In May 1945 he joined the Sokol Revolutionary Guard and on May 8, on the way to Jablonec nad Nisou, he experienced a German air raid. In the ranks of the revolutionary guard supervised order in Jablonec nad Nisou and experienced the arrival of the Red Army. After the war he joined the local business academy, where he thrived in studying foreign languages. Due to a cadre assessment, as an active falcon and son from a business family, he could not study college and in 1952 enlisted to the Auxiliary Technical Battalions (PTP). In 1953 he applied for a marriage permit, and then had two daughters, Ivana and Dana, with his wife. In 1955 he returned as a company dispatcher to a former family business and in 1970 he became director, although he was never a member of the Communist Party. After the Velvet Revolution Jaroslav took over the former family business again and tried to preserve the legacy of the glass industry in the region.
