Director Milos Forman, known for his work on Oscar-winning film "Amadeus," has died on April 13th, 2018.

He was was born in Caslav, Czech Republic, in 1932. His father was a member of a resistance group against the Nazi occupation. Both his parents were killed in Nazi concentration camps during World War II.

  "My parents were real patriots, and that was probably the reason why they died. Not until much later, when I was suddenly far from my homeland and its culture, far away from my family, when I was cut away from the land of my childhood, I realized I shared this strong feeling of affection for my country with them," Forman had said, according to his biography.
