He did not join the party, he remembered how his grandparents lost everything
Miloslav Rálek was born on October 24, 1948 in the now defunct maternity hospital in Štvanice. His father, Karel Rálek, was a member of the Communist Party and worked as a designer at the Ministry of Agriculture, while his mother, Miloslava, came from a rich family of farmers from Hrusice. After 1948, his grandparents’ property was confiscated by the unified agricultural cooperative (JZD), and his uncle František Černý worked for half a year in the uranium mines in Příbram. Miloslav Rálek grew up in Horní Počernice and trained to be a plumber. In 1967, he joined Průmstav, where he worked for over twenty years. He spent the whole of 1982 building housing units in Tripoli, Libya.
