About Alois Frischmann

From Dagmar Greslova's interview with Jiri Frantek: The man in the uniform with decorations on his lapel, standing beside my father, is his brother, Alois Frischmann. Alois Frischmann was a doctor, and lived in Chocen, right beside Vysoke Myto, where our family lived. My uncle was a completely 'Czechified' jew. He was a very good tennis player and was the local tennis functionary. In fact, after the war they named after him a street that ran beside the tennis courts in Chocen, Alois Frischmann Street. Not long after that, when exactly I'm not sure, as of course no-one announced it to me, they renamed it. Once when the communists were already in power I arrived there on a visit, and what do I see but that it's been renamed to U Tenisu [Tennis St.], which is what it's called to this day. My uncle was never involved with any resistance activities, as opposed to his brother [Arnost Frischmann], but also came to an unfortunate end, because he was denounced by a colleague of his, for continuing to practice at a time when jews were no longer allowed to practice medicine. I still remember that, he simply kept on practicing despite the ban, because people were used to him, and he must have been a good doctor. That's quite obvious, because all warnings of 'it's dangerous for you, and for me' were for nought. People said 'Mr. Doctor, you have to see me. You have to come. And you say you have a jewish star? So come at night.' In the end the whole town knew about it. Chocen had a population of six or eight thousand, and no one said a thing, until one fellow doctor denounced him. I know his name, but I don't want to name him, because his descendants would want proof, and that of course doesn't exist. Because of this my uncle was shot before the start of the Holocaust.
