Transcript A CLOSE-UP VIEW O ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jim (Georcki I1kvii\. author of thc Following article on Radio Free Europe, was horn in Brno. Czechoslovakia, on March 8, 1923. He is a student of psychology and sociology, and well versed in several languages. His references include a famous American general, present and former members of Congress, and members of the Bavarian parliament (Landtag). During the years of Nazi occupation, Jiri Braih worked in a factory and also managed to do some studying eit the English Institute in Brno and the I niversity of Rostock. Unlike many other Czechoslovaks of his age', he never joined the .Nazi party nor any of the organizations which, upon the defeat of Nazi Germany, were declared to be fascist either hy the \llics or the postwar government of Czechoslovakia. Following World War II. Jiri Brada studied history, philosophy and law at the I Diversity of Brno. After the Communist coup in Czechoslovakia, in February, 1918. the Communist Action Committee expelled him from the I Diversity and declared him ineligible for study at any other academic institution behind the Iron Curtain. When he refused to become an informer for the Communist government and consequently was threatened with immediate arrest, he illegally crossed the Czech-Austrian border, on October 2, 1918. Since January, 1949, Brada has been active in a variety of refugee organizations in Germanv. From May, 1951, till July, 1951, he was employed by Radio Free Europe, as a reference assistant and librarian. He is now a journalist in Germain. \ vigorous opponenl of socialism as well as communism. Jiri Brada, in his testimony for the Committee on Communist Aggression, V. S. House if Representatives I Hon. Charles J. Kersten, chairman I, of June 28. 1954, made a number ol statements which warrant the attention of thoughtful and alert Americans. As an example, Mr. Brada has made thc serious accusation that "the American Intelligence Service (CIC and CIA) is not interested in investigating anything aboul the Communist system." "lhe American authorities," Brada has testified, ''take as source of information not the opinions of the anti-Communist refugees but the Communist radio ami press in the Easl . . . they swallow every Communist swindle and show to the East clearly that they also arc either unintelligent enough to be misled or are Communist* dominated . . ."
