This segment originally aired on May 15, 2012.
None of the people who worked with Charles O. Heller when he ran the Dingman Center on Entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland; or, when he taught aerospace engineering at the Naval Academy; or, when he started several software businesses; none of his neighbors around Annapolis, knew that as a 9-year-old boy in Czechoslovakia at the end of World War II that he picked up an abandoned gun and shot a Nazi in the chest.
For decades Heller didn’t tell anyone, until he prepared to write the memoir he published last year, Prague: My Long Journey Home. Sheilah spoke with Heller last May.
Heller has an upcoming reading of the book, Wednesday at 6 p.m., at the Enoch Pratt’s Reisterstown Road Branch library. He’s currently working on the next two volumes of his memoirs. The working title for volume two? “Cowboy From Prague”.
