Hana Juracakova,

born Strnadlova, was born in Trojanovice in 1932. First she worked in a broadcast studio, later as a production manager in Ostrava Television Studios for thirty years. She has always considered retirement age to be a “freelance life” and it sometimes seems to her that she has done more during this period of her life than ever before. She has made films about fellow countrymen overseas and radio talk shows involving people with interesting lives called “A lete bezi…”, she has written number of feuilletons and reports, in addition she has devoted a lot of time to the descendants of emigrants in Texas and Canada.

In the early 1990’s, Mrs. Lorraine Strnadel Rod, one of the CCMH’s honorary board members was visiting her ancestors in Trojanovice, Czech Republic.  She met with her distant cousin Mrs. Hana Strnadel Juračáková.

In 2004, Hana wrote a collection of short stories and named them “Little Crumbs.” In 2016, Mrs. Lorraine Strnadel Rod had the book translated by Marie Mann (a senior CCMH volunteer), and published in the Czech Republic.

“When I first met Hana Juracakova, nee Strnadel in Summer, 1987, with whom I shared a great, great grandfather (my great/great father came to the US in 1878), we quickly felt kinship and warm bonding. I left part of my heart in the country of my ancestors every time I visited. When I later read her book of memories Odrobinky, it was obvious that my long-time love of reading made me want Hana’s exceptional talents as a writer to be appreciated on a larger stage. It became clear that I had a mission to turn her words into English so more people could share her recalled life.

And …that started me down a long road towards publishing her remembrances. I will not forget, at last, to mention all the help I had along the trail from my relatives in the Czech Republic, and especially that from my hard working guide and translator of those stories.

Please enjoy and spread Hana’s LITTLE CRUMBS on the tables of your loved ones—sons, daughters, grand kids, friends and neighbors.”
