People need to trust each other
Jan Janisch was born in Lanškroun on 9 April 1926. He and his sister grew up in a Czech-German family. He was on forced labour deployment during the war and only avoided Wehrmacht draft thanks to his mother’s firm stance. The StB interrogated him for hours in the 1950s. Despite their pressure he rejected their offer of collaboration. He still works and, at age 92, is probably the oldest working retiree in the Czech Republic.
