I am lucky – I have my father’s original. He gave it to his mother when he escaped. She kept it till she died (I was never able to meet her because of communism). She left it to her eldest daughter (my father’s favourite sister) who I met when I went to Prague for one day in 1995 – just to see her. I subsequently visited her daughter (my cousin) at her chata in Decin. She said she had something for me and put my father’s badge in my hand. I will leave you all to imagine how I felt.
