Rudi Schlattner and his family left their home in Czechoslovakia after World War II but when he returned to the house, a simple tug of a string inside the attic revealed a wonderful surprise.

 

This is the house that Rudi Schlatnner and his family fled after World War II. He hasn't been back for over 70 years.
When Rudi returned, he went to find his father's possessions that were hidden inside of the roof.
Finding these treasures in the roof again must have been an amazing trip down memory lane for Rudi.
There were so many items inside, it took them over an hour to unearth everything.
The hidden treasures were still in perfect condition.
It's amazing to see how well they have held up over time.
These bottles were all still intact, many of which still had their contents inside.
Rudi's father had wrapped these dolls in paper to preserve them over the years.
Technically, the building now belongs to the Czech government, and thus, the objects aren't in Rudi's possession. Now, the items are going to be stored in the local Usti nad Labem museum.
Still the 80-year-old was happy to be reconnected with his lost family treasures, even if his reunion was brief.

I want to know the mechanics of how pulling the string allowed them to access that space...

So, the Czech state assumed ownership?

How lovely. How very Draconian.

How did it occur to him to check anyway and if the government owned it what was he even doing back there at 80.
