Miroslav Procházka joined the resistance activities after his unsuccessful escape attempt to Western Europe. Initially, it worked well. At the turn of the 1940s and 1950s, Miroslav was hiding a former English pilot, by the name of Salajka, in his family house in the village of Želešice. Salajka was an agent of the western intelligence services organizing the local resistance activities at that time. Initially, the odds were in favor of Miroslav and he was even able to hide Salajka during a police search of his house. The police officer in charge asked Miroslav if there was somebody in his house. Fortunately, the father of Miroslav reacted quickly. He told the policeman that a friend of him had spent his holiday at his place. The police officer was content with the answer. However, the situation got complicated at the moment when three youngsters started their own resistance activities in the neighborhood of Žaletice. They shot and wounded a gamekeeper and on that same night they came to Miroslav’s house to ask for refuge. Miroslav provided them with a place to stay. After a week, another agent came to take the boys to some other place. But after a few days, Miroslav was warned via radio. He was instructed to leave his home immediately and hide at a safe place because the Russians caught the three young men that Miroslav had provided shelter a few days earlier while they were trying to cross the border between Czechoslovakia and Austria. Miroslav was thus not safe at his home anymore and therefore he decided to escape to Vienna.
