Vera Hejak

Vera Hajek

Heda and Ludvik’s daughter, Vera was born on May 4th, 1926. Living very close by to the Brady home, Vera grew up playing with Hana and George. When their parents were arrested, Vera generously shared her room with Hana and made the children feel at home. She was forbidden to go to school in 1942, despite being a Catholic as her mother was ‘only’ a converted Jew. Vera started working oddjobs at 16 and remained at home with her father throughout the war.

She lives close to Nove Mesto to this day and has remained very close with George.
