Zuzana Peterová was born on October 25th of 1950 in Praha to a Jewish family. Her family had been traumatised by the events of the Second World War during which about sixty people related to her perished in the concentration camps. Her father, Miloslav Schneider, was sentenced in a show-trial in the 50s and spent many years in prison. Because of that, she had not been allowed to study at the gymnasium. However, in 1966, she had succeeded. After that, she studied at the Charles University´s Faculty of the Social Sciences where she got her doctorate and a PhDr. title. After she had graduated, she couldn´t get a job position she was qualified for. She joined the staff at Zemědělské noviny, working as an editor. In 1969, she married and after that she gave birth to four children. During her maternity leave she took courses in psychology and psychotherapy and used her experience as a journalist in writing several books.
