Our Residents


Theresie was born on the 17th June 1923 in Rybáře, Czechoslovakia. There she attended elementary school. In 1938 the family moved to Chomutov and Theresie then attended the Commercial School at Most. As both her parents were very active members of the Social Democratic Party they had to leave Chomutov when the German troops marched into Czechoslovakia under the Munich agreement.
