The communists stuck at nothing during the collectivization of agriculture in Telecí
Antonín Lamplot was born on 25 August, 1935 in the village of Telecí in the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. The family successfully farmed on a large private farm. When a cooperative farm was set up in Telecí, the Lamplots became members of the cooperative, but about a year later they left and farmed privately again. After that, they became the target of pressure and persecution by the local communists, who were not successful at cooperative farming in Telecí. Antonín Lamplot witnessed arrests and expulsions of the biggest local farmers. The Lamplots rejoined the cooperative farm in 1959, after the management of the cooperative had changed. After returning from the military service, the witness did various jobs at the farm until his retirement. In 2020 he was living with his wife at his family farm.
