Heinz Bischitz

Vienna
Austria
Interviewer: Tanja Eckstein
Date of interview: March 2003

Heinz Bischitz lives in a house owned by the Jewish Community in Vienna’s 2nd district.

I had already asked him six months ago to give me an interview, which he rejected after some consideration.

That’s why I was very surprised when I found out from ESRA that he was indeed ready to give me an interview.

Heinz Bischitz is a large, strong man with a full head of hair.

Dr. Lucia Heilman still lives in the apartment her mother received from the Russian commandant’s office after the war.

She later lived in this apartment with her husband and raised her daughters there, so it contains many memories.

She felt more at home, however, with her husband in the smaller apartment on Semmerring.

Olga Brodova

This is a picture of my mother Olga Brodova, nee Pickova. It was taken in Vienna in the Nachim Chefez studio, but I don’t know when.

My mother was born on 29th January 1890 in Ledec nad Sazavou. Her mother tongue was German I think, but she spoke Czech perfectly, her handwriting was also clear.

When she spoke, the same as when she wrote letters, she crossed over fluently from one language to the other. Both languages were completely normal back then.

Toman Brod in Vienna

This photo is from Vienna, probably from the year 1963. I think that it was actually the first time I had visited Vienna; I was there for some conference. I didn't go abroad too often, to go somewhere outside of Communist Czechoslovakia wasn't that easy.

At the beginning of the 1960s the time of horrors passed, it was again somewhat freer, and I got an offer from the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, to concern myself with international and Czechoslovak politics under their auspices.
