Freedom not just for me, but for everyone
Jaroslava Suchá was born on March 20th of 1932 in Praha, her father was an officer. Her family moved a lot as her father has been posted to several garrisons; at the beginning of the World War II he was stationed in Tábor. The Czechoslovak army had been disbanded after the Protectorate had been establish, so the family stayed together and survived the war without serious consequences (apart from witlessness’s older brother who died of grave disease). After February 1948, Jaroslava resented the fact that the power has been taken by the Communists. After graduating from gymnasium in Tábor, she wanted to study teaching at college but in the end, she began to work as an instructor at the Secondary technical boarding school. She was shocked by the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in August 1968. On November 17th 1989, she has been visiting Praha and saw police sealing the Václavské Square and its surroundings.
