|•|| Report from the family archive Aussprung:|
In 1946 the majority of the parishioners were evacuated. The parish was almost extinct. The last pastor, Johann Landwehr (1910-1974), left St. Maurenzen on Thursday September 12, 1946.
Holy masses were rarely read. The priests traveled a long way, coming from Unterreichstein (Rejštejn), Petrowitz (Petrovice) and Bergreichenstein (Kašperské Hory).
The innkeeper and master tailor Alois Aussprung (1901-1991) from Kundratitz wrote in his memoirs: “When my mother Theresia Aussprung, née Lang, died in January 1947, the church in St. Maurenzen was deserted. There was no longer a priest or a gravedigger. So I had to dig the grave in the frozen field of God with my daughter Maria. The priest came from Bergreichenstein and gave the last respects to the mother. She was buried in her native soil before we were resettled."
Priests and ministers are going through a difficult time, they are humiliated, denounced and slandered, but try to continue their work to the best of their ability.
