Novotný, Ondřej ; Randák, Jan (advisor) ; Mücke, Pavel (referee)
Presented Bachelor Thesis Connexions between village population and the insane asylum in Horní Beřkovice in the years 1968-1989 is a contribution to the theme of Czechoslovak psychiatry and its relation to ordinary people during the period of normalization in Czechoslovakia. The aim of my work is to bring people's views closer to the institution, which have evolved and dynamically changed over the years. Based on interviews with narrators, residents of the village and former employees of the asylum that I did during field research, I describe their memories in contrast to the history of the asylum. Thus, the thesis deals with a rather subjective view of the entire history of the period under review and, besides the chronicle records, also brings the views of the respondents to the situation at that time.

Abstact The hereby presented study deals with a cross boarder migration of people during the times of communist rule in Czechoslovakia and during the period immediately following the demise of the Soviet domination in Eastern and Central Europe. The study concentrates on those individual migrants who spent a significant period of their lives abroad. This study should elucidate several key aspects of the cross boarder emigration and re-emigration (be that voluntary or forced) as seen by the respective migrants themselves. In particular, those aspects are: how a long-term residence in a foreign country altered their relationship with respect to their home country, what kind of relationship the migrants developed with respect to their new country of residence and what the very act of emigration/re-emigration itself meant in the life of each individual migrant covered by this study. One of the principal issues this study relates to is this: is it possible to consider the identities of individual migrants as having remained "national" despite their long residence in a foreign country or, alternately, is it correct to state that their identities had changed to that of an "emigrant" flavor. In each individual case of the perceived identity change the study attempts to identify the characteristics of the changed...
