Jindřich Polák was born on 27 November 1947 in Jaroměř. His father Jindřich Polák was a trained electrician and his mother Vlasta, born Vávrová, worked as a seamstress and later sold in a drugstore. He had two older sisters. He finished primary school in Jaroměř. He liked sports, he loved skiing, hockey and especially football. He studied mechanical engineering in Nové Město nad Metují. Because of a dispute over his long hair, he finished school in Hradec Králové. He graduated in 1971 while working. In the sixties he played and sang in the big beat band Hells Angels, where he also worked as a bandleader. He experienced annual performances in front of a committee. Since 1966, he worked as a civilian employee for the military unit 1117 in Josefov, first in the warehouse and since 1970 in the purchasing department. He experienced absurd situations, for example, when he drove a bus with a rucksack on his back to collect goods ordered for the army. In August 1968, he went to discussions with Polish soldiers whose tanks were stationed on the main road in Jaroměř for several days. In the early 1980s, his brother-in-law emigrated to Switzerland, but returned six months later. He was interrogated at work, and then Jan Vašata, a member of the military counterintelligence, came to him and asked him about various things. From 1983 onwards, he kept a volume on the witness in which he was marked as an agent. In 1986 he closed the file. He mentioned that Jindřich Polák had supplied only oral information, on the basis of which no person had been prosecuted. The witness did not recall signing a promise of cooperation. In 1989, he photographically recorded the general strike in Hradec Králové. In 1993, he retired to the private sphere. Since injuring his knee in 1982, he worked in his spare time on the photographic chronicle of the town of Jaroměř, where he and his wife still lived in 2022.
