Ludmila Blahoušová, born in 1928 in the town of Sušice, Czechoslovakia (now in Czech Republic), describes having a brother and sister and living in Sušice until 1937; her father applying to be a sacristan at a church far away and his family moving to live closer to the church; Jewish families owning textile and clothing shops; boys who were part of the fascist party of Sudeten-German politician Konrad Henlein and wanted to prosecute Jews; Jewish people being restricted to use a laundry house for only one hour in the evening; Jews being assembled in a Jewish community building next to a cemetery; hearing rumors about Jews, such as Jewish people needing blood for Easter celebrations; and her father having more interactions with Jews far more than her generation.
