Part of the resistance against the Nazi Germany were partisan troops operating in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. They arose in mountainous and forested areas - particullarly suitable terrain was at Moravia-Slovak border, the Moravia-Silesian Beskids and the region Wallachia. The first partisan units were formed there in the spring of 1942 but the major resitance started only after the partisan unit led by Ján Ušiak and Dajan Bajanovič Murzin crossed the border from Slovakia to Moravia and I. Czechoslovak Partisan Brigade of Jan Žižka was founded. This thesis deals wiht the activities of querilla units operating in Wallachia during World War II.

Jews in Polná in first half of the 20th century
Formáčková, Anna ; Čechurová, Jana (advisor) ; Šedivý, Ivan (referee)
Annotation: This bachelor thesis deals with the issue of the Jewish population in the town of Polná. It pays the most attention to the interwar period, but marginally focuses on the period during both world wars. The work deals with both the daily life of the Jewish community and more general contexts. The work is based on the testimony of witnesses who were not themselves members of the Jewish community, but were connected by personal ties with the Jews, so their destinies were very directly influenced and affected. Very marginally, the work also deals with the post-war period. The main goal of this bachelor's thesis is a comprehensive presentation of information about the Jewish community in Polná in a specified period of time. Another ambition of the work is to contribute to the local bibliography on the topic and to raise awareness of this issue. Due to the current situation where the coronavirus pandemic complicates access to information and resources, the work is mostly based on the literature and edited sources.
Torwads new man! Social experiment in Post-war Czechoslovakia demonstrated in the example of Emil Zátopek.
Švehla, Jan ; Šedivý, Ivan (advisor) ; Randák, Jan (referee)
In this diploma thesis I deal with the concept of a new socialist man in Czechoslovakia between 1948 and 1956 on the example of Emil Zátopek. The aim was to analyze the form of the new socialist man on the example of selected fiction, newspaper articles, visual, audio and archival material, taking into account the person of Emil Zátopek. The research was conducted using methods of discursive analysis. I approached the concept of the new socialist man as a social construct. Research has shown that the image of the new socialist man was dynamic and was misused by communist ideologues to create images of ideal citizens and emphasize the negative qualities of external and internal enemies. Exceptional personalities, such as Emil Zátopek, were shown by period propaganda as ideal citizens who were a harbinger of a new world. Zátopek's period image consists of two forms that intertwined with each other. Their combination enabled the communist propagandists to present Zátopek as a new socialist man, yet an ordinary citizen. The diploma thesis is divided into three chapters, which refer to each other. The chapters were conceived according to the image of Zátopek in contemporary propaganda.

Presented diploma thesis focuses on research and analysis of the only decoration founded in the name of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

The main research question is following: why was not the preceding First Czechoslovak Republic creating similar institutions and why after 1945, or more precisely 1948, the time has come to create enormous inflation of them. The main aim of the thesis is to define the Honour Shield of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia as probably the very first civil decoration of modern Czech history. The thesis is not only focusing on the period of the occupation (1944-45), when the decoration was distributed. It also concentrates in detail on the previous thinking of the Nazi occupation authorities, which then resulted in founding of the decoration, together with the postwar retribution, with which were the awarded people confronted after 1945. The thesis is modifying so far common purely phaleristical approach to the topic, which it is supplementing with wider context.
