The smuggling network of Ota Tulačka
After the communist coup, Milada Pabiánová's father Ota Tulačka created a prominent smuggling network. It included the smuggling of major figures such as Col. Alexander Hess, the commander of the 310th Fighter Squadron of the Royal Air Force, Ivana Tigridová, and Chancellor to President Beneš, Jaromír Smutný. Tulačka worked in Prague, where he arranged and prepared the transfers. Another member of the group from Kdyně would take the fugitives from Prague to the border village of Všeruby. From there they were taken across the border by members of the police force who collaborated with Tulačka’s network. The operations encompassed a great risk for everyone involved. In fact, some of the same police officers that assisted in the transferring of fugitives were also involved in the so-called "Kámen" operation, the cover-up operation which carried out the arrests of citizens for crossing the fake border of Czechoslovakia and Germany.
