When I was in school, my teacher said that I could not speak Czech and that she should not speak Czech at home, so my mother cried.
One male from every family had to go to Siberia. It was in 1946. Then in 1953, Stalin passed away. My grandfather went to Siberia. Many people went there. Families separated. Every family cried. It was a big problem.
At that time, everybody was getting monitored by the government. My mother lost her job after the restaurant she worked at was closed down. She was a cook.
In 1956 there was a political revolution.
