Alois Denemarek (b.1917) was friend of Jan Kubiš. He kept in touch with Kubiš around the assassination. The Denemarek family hid parachutist Pospíšil (Bivouac group) in their house. Both the parents and the brother of Alois Denemarek were arrested after the betrayal and they died in concentration camps. Alois Denemarek escaped his fate - shortly before that he got married and moved with his wife to another village. Source: http://www.pametnaroda.cz/witness/index/id/824
