Biographical / Historical

Hubert Masarik was born on July 2, 1896. He studied law at the University of Prague, and worked at Czechoslovakia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 1920 until 1939. While head of a ministry department during the Nazi occupation in 1938-1939, Masarik collaborated with the occupying government forces. He was arrested by the Gestapo in 1941 and later released due to the influence of his German and Italian friends. After the war, Masarik was again accused of collaboration and imprisoned. In 1946, he was released by the People's Court because of his beneficial deeds during his time in power. After working as a translator, he went into retirement in 1959. Masarik died in Prague on October 13, 1982.
