BEST FRIENDS

Voskovec and Werich were born in the same year - 1905. Werich’s parents soon divorced, and he lived with his mother while his father served at the front in WWI. On being an only child, Werich reflected, “It was horrible. I never had anyone to play with, no one to tussle with.” Voskovec, the third and youngest child of his parents, was born into a family with extended roots in the arts. His father served in the Czechoslovak legion in Russia in WWI. When they were eleven years old, Voskovec and Werich began attending school together in the same classroom, where they formed a friendship that lasted a lifetime.
