“I like the Czechs but they lack backbone”
Ondřej Rácz was born on November 1, 1928, in Velký Blahov (Nagy Abony, present-day Slovakia) in the family of a Hungarian carpenter. In WWI, his dad was in Russian imprisonment. After WWII, the village was occupied by the Soviets and in 1946, the whole family was sent for forced labor on a farm in Málkov, near Beroun. There, Ondřej met Marie Anna Trüberová who came from a German family, that was in a similar situation. As soon as circumstances allowed for it, the two married and had four children. After the marriage, Mr. Rácz served with an auxiliary technical battalion (so-called PTP), in Karviná for two and a half years. Since 1966, he and his wife live in Točník.
