native Kolnsko used to be an epic bat. The Mandelk family belonged to the most probable local sugar factories. But after 1948, there was virtually nothing left for its large fortune, and there was practically nothing left of the gold rush.
More than a hundred years ago, the sugar beet won her nickname and gold. echy, especially the middle ones, the land was weak for her, sugar was spewing hundreds of companies at the time of its greatest glory at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, their turnover was in the tens of millions of crowns.
The aristocrat as well as the peasants freed from servitude after 1848 invested in the sugar factory. Bernard, the youngest son of Rosalie Mandelkov, née Pollatschekov, bet on gold.
The founding sugar euphoria graduated in the 1960s and 1970s. At that time, Bernard Mandelk entered big business, when he took over the mother-run grain business. He was fascinated by his expertise, unpretentious entrepreneurship and hard work. His business partners appreciated his impeccable reputation and solid unity, says historian Bedich Bernau.
He took a step in the building of the family business Bernard Mandelk made business contacts with the owner of the Ratbosk farm, Baroness Tereza Cecingarová from Birnice. The Ratbosk sugar factory, built in 1853, was also responsible for this.
In 1888, the Baroness appointed Mandelka a so-called power of attorney, ie a power of attorney for the operation of the sugar factory. The popularity of foolish gold is in steep times. In addition to sweeteners from epa and maple, the consumption of substitute yeast mixtures and, later, domestic rum increased, explains sugar expert Karel Duffek, noting that especially in large poor families in cities and the countryside, the consumption of live and dairy sweets gradually became commonplace. and bread.
Mandelk also invested in new machinery and technology from the Ratbosk sugar factory, and in 1891 he bought the company and the farm for more than a million gold coins from Baronine Ddic, engraved by Eduard Cecingar of Birnice.
From sugar to electron
spn businessman gradually spread the farm. In 1904, the Sedlov yard was rented to Ratboi and then the Kbel yard. At the turn of the 20th century, the Ternberg sugar factory in Zsmukch had a lease, and later bought a sugar factory in Bevry. Mandelkov bag expanded into other fields as well, according to which they gained, for example, in the Cologne power plant and thus outside the borders of the Cologne region.
The level of the entrance from Prague was not flat, even with the contribution of Mandelk, to the Czech sugar factory. This is evidenced, for example, today by a few kilometers oiven kolnsk epask drha. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the length of the local epics reached more than 130 kilometers. They were kites coming from Kolna, Vlkava, Kince, Kopidlna, Dymokur and Libvsi. After these routes, the sugar transport station was epoched to the individual sugar factories and to be loaded at the main line.
Robert, a graduate of the family dynasty, Robert, a graduate of chemistry at the Czech Technical University, also became a technician at the father of the sugar factory in Ratboi. After the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic, he threw himself not only into business but also into politics. He participated in the establishment of the National Bank, became involved in the leadership of the Central Czechoslovak Sugar Association, the Asekuran Association of the Sugar Industry and other organizations.
As a representative of the sugar cartel, the bag was not very popular among socialist members of parliament. This happened at the height of the domestic fever of gold. In the 1920s, there was 155 sugar factory in the Czech lands. At the end of the 1930s, their number fell to 108 and the amount of sugar dropped per gut fell from 8,655 tons to 6,095 tons.
Robert was also involved in communal politics. He served as mayor and until the German occupation. She had a bad time with the fate of the whole family. Some of its members ended up in concentration camps due to their Jewish origin, and they fought abroad in the armies. The family drank for the property after 1948. They regained it and after 1989. There is practically nothing left of the seduction for gold today. Years ago, the complex fell to the ground during demolition.
In the years 1910 and 1913, an elegant villa was built in Ratboi on the basis of an order from Otto and Ervin, the son of Bernard Mandelka. Its author was the spade architect Jan Kotra, and a significant statue of Jan Tursa was added to the sculptural period. Robert Mandelk, the eldest of the son, wrapped up the neighbor Star Zmek. The villa is now a luxury hotel.
