Listening to machine gun fire at night is no fun
Zdeněk Slezák was born on November 13, 1953 in Prague into a medical family. He spent his childhood in the vicinity of Prague’s Eden, on the then outskirts of Prague. I went to Vladivostocká Elementary School here. He remembers mainly the period of the Prague Spring, which brought him the opportunity to enter Junák with his best friend, and the occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1968, which he partly experienced in the Tatras and partly in Prague. The planned trip to the seasonal job of picking strawberries in the Great Britain in 1969 was no longer possible. After entering the Přípotoční grammar school, he had conflicts with a communist professor.
