Woman and War: Czechoslovak Women serving during the Second World War in the British Auxiliary Services ATS. and WAAF
Stegurová, Karolína ; Čechurová, Jana (advisor) ; Stehlík, Eduard (referee) ; Němeček, Jan (referee)
The dissertation thesis describes and analyses military service of Czechoslovak women in British army namely in ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) and WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) units. First Czechoslovak women joined British armed forces in mid 1941 and served directly on the British soil in the Army and Airforce bases. Other Czechoslovak women joined ATS and WAAF in the Middle East campaing since 1943. During the WWII more than two hundreds Czechoslovak citizens served in the auxillary units. The thesis describes the course of WAAF/ATS training, working set up and everyday life in the military with all pros and cons linked. The text further deals with the approach of the Czechoslovak exile institutions e.g. National Defence ministry, towards Czechoslovak women serving in the foreign army. One of the main topics is finding answer to question why Czechoslovakian women could serve only in the army of the allied state and if there were ever thoughts or plans for creation of similar unit directly with Czechoslovak foreign units. This is being considered in the broader context of British environment and war policy. In order to achieve understanding of the Czechoslovak women situation the text further focuses on reasons behind creation/reinstating of women auxiliary units. The text describes...

Němeček, Jan ; Roh, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Vinšová, Jarmila (referee) ; Hampl, František (referee)
Charles University Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Candidate: Mgr. Jan Němeček Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. PharmDr. Jaroslav Roh, PhD Title of doctoral thesis: Synthesis of substituted nitrogen heterocycles as potential antitubercular agents Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most common causes of death in the world. It is an infectious disease caused by Mycobactetrium tuberculosis (M.tb.). Worldwide, it is estimated that only in 2017 TB caused 1.6 million deaths and 10 million new cases of TB have appeared. TB is treatable and curable disease, but multidrug-resistant (MDR-TB) and extensively drug- resistant (XDR-TB) strains of TB have appeared and the treatment of these resistant strains of TB is very complicated. During the last several decades, only two new antitubercular drugs bedaquilin and delamanid have been introduced into the clinical practice. Thus the development of new antitubercular drug is still very important. In our group, we developed new antitubercular compounds based on 3,5- dinitrobenzylsulphanyl tetrazole and oxa(thia)diazole, whose efficient concentrations reached tens of nM against drug susceptible and drug-resistant strains of M. tb. In my work, I dealt with both structural types. At first, we prepared series of substituted 5-(3-...

Loss of Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia at the End of World War 2
Hubený, David ; Rychlík, Jan (advisor) ; Plachý, Jiří (referee) ; Němeček, Jan (referee)
Loss of Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia at the End of World War 2 David Hubený Czechoslovakia came by Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia completely unexpectedly after World War 1. The Republic tried with dedication to help the Slavonic population of the region, hardly aware of their nationality, get rid of poverty and ignorance. Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia, however, did not fit into the concept of Czechoslovak statehood. Some Czechoslovak politicians (e.g. Karel Kramář) only perceived the mission of the Republic at Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia as the role of a "faithful trustee" that should hand Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia over to Russia when the right time comes. On the other hand, Czechoslovak Communists called the region Trans-Carpathian Ukraine as early as 1920s and alleged that the local Slavonic population are Ukrainians. The Republic did not want to get involved in the ethnic development. At the time of the "Second Republic", power in Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia was seized by Ukrainian Nationalists, who colluded with Nazis. The former saw Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia as kind of Ukrainian Piemont, which would unite all Ukrainians in one state, while the latter found it a perfect tool to destabilize the USSR by opening up the hot Ukrainian issue. Relations of Czechoslovak security services to Ukrainian Nationalists were really bad. Ukrainian...

Němeček, Jan ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Nečas, Vlastimil (referee)
Bachelor thesis Bias of Czech media: the image of Radovan Krejčíř and his activities in the contemporary press analyzes how chosen media informed about events during the escape of Radovan Krejčíř from the Czech Republic in 2005. The quantitative analysis aims to reveal potential journalism methods and working procedures, that could cause, at the end, bias on public. Theoretical part of these thesis focuses on defining the term bias and specifies defined terms, which this study contains. Theoretical concepts kinds of bias are introduced and monitored press is defined. Practical part of this study draws information form monitored periodicals in defined time table and emphasizes on following comparation of analyzed data. The main aim of this study is to find out, how media worked with information and confirm or refute potential bias.
Alkaloids of family Amaryllidaceae and their analogues as potential drugs
Kavková, Zuzana ; Cahlíková, Lucie (advisor) ; Němeček, Jan (referee)
Charles University in Prague Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Department of Pharmaceutical Botany and Ecology Candidate: Zuzana Kavková Supervisor: doc. Ing. Lucie Cahlíková, Ph.D. Title of diploma thesis: Alkaloids of family Amaryllidaceae and their analogues as potential drugs The object of this diploma thesis was to prepare derivatives of alkaloids of Amaryllidaceae family and to deal with their biological activity. These alkaloids are famous for their antibacterial, antiinfectives, antifungal, antimalarial and inhibitory activity against AChE, BuChE and POP and also for cytotoxic effect against cell lines. In the current studies about anticancer activity it was found that the most active alkaloids are Amaryllidaceae alkaloids of these types: lycorine, crinane and pancratistatine. Their biological activity relates closely with their structure. The changes of different parts of the structure can explain the relationship between structure and activity, and also the importance of their organization which is necessary for starting the activity. Based on this finding were for the experiments chosen alkaloids like haemanthamine, haemanthidine and lycorine. An eleven derivatives were prepared and identified mostly by GC-MS and NMR. These derivatives were tested on a wide spectrum of tumor lines....
"Czech", or "Czechoslovak" Army? The ethnic and nationality composition of the Czechoslovak military units-in-exile in 1939 - 1945

Charles University in Prague Faculty of Arts Institute of Czech Studies Historical Sciences - Czech History Zdenko M a r š á l e k ABSTRACT OF THE PhD THESIS "Česká", nebo "československá" armáda? Národnostní složení československých vojenských jednotek v zahraničí v letech 1939-1945 "Czech", or "Czechoslovak" Army? The ethnic and nationality composition of the Czechoslovak military units-in-exile in 1939-1945 tutor: prof. PhDr. Jan Kuklík, CSc. (†) PhDr. Jan Gebhart, DrSc. 2014 ABSTRACT General background One of the most important phenomena, which is important especially in current and future Europe, is the problem of the personal self-identification of individuals in the multinational and multicultural environment of higher (e.g., political) units, in particular national self- identification. For research about the problems connected with this phenomenon, the sample of the Czechoslovak units-in-exile during the World War II is an almost ideal historical model. The Czechoslovak units were, by far, the most diverse armed forces among the all exile-armies; yet this issue has not attracted the attention it deserves, neither in terms of different nationalities, nor from the perspective of ethnic issues in the units as a whole. The issue of the nationality in the resistance-in-exile was determined by the needs...

Miroslav Eisenhammer Forced use of secondary school students during the occupation Supervisor: PhDr. Jan Gebhart, CSc., DSc. Abstract This dissertation deals with yet completely unprocessed issue of forced labor deployment of secondary and vocational school pupils in the Czech lands during the occupation by Nazi Germany. After the initial characteristics of the development of the German and the Protectorate economy and the Nazi attitude to use workforce of its own population and of occupied countries, the other chapter is devoted to the situation in the Czech education in 1939-1945. The Nazis considered the Czech intelligence as the enemy, so after the closure of Czech universities they deliberately restricted Czech secondary education. These restrictions did not have only national political, but also economic significance. From 1939 workers from the Czech lands were sent to work in the Reich. This trend increased significantly from 1942, when Germany intensified the expansion of war production and at the same time they started extensive program of forced labor of foreign workers in German industry. One of the labor sources were secondary school pupils, who the new legislation from February 1943 allowed to acknowledge de facto incomplete education based on the confirmed certificate in forced labor...
Synthesis of tetrazole derivatives as potential antituberculotics
Němeček, Jan ; Roh, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Vávrová, Kateřina (referee)
Charles University in Prague Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Department of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry Candidate: Jan Němeček Supervisor: PharmDr. Jaroslav Roh, PhD. Title of diploma thesis: Synthesis of tetrazole derivatives as potential antituberculotics Tuberculosis is a widespread infectious disease; however, no substances were introduced to the clinical practise during the last decade. In this diploma thesis, a series of potential antitubercular substances based on 1-substitued-5-alkyl/arylsulphanyl-1H-tetrazole were prepared. First, we prepared two compounds, 5-[(1-phenyl-1H-tetrazole-5-yl)sulphanylmethyl]-1H- tetrazole and 5-[(1-phenyl-1H-tetrazole-5-yl)sulphanyl]-1H-tetrazole, as the main building blocks, which were further functionalized. 5-[(1-phenyl-1H-tetrazole-5-yl)sulphanyl]-1H-tetrazole was substituted by methyl, propyl and benzyl groups on the terminal tetrazole ring. The same substitutions were performed with 5-[(1- phenyl-1H-tetrazole-5-yl)oxymethyl]-1H-tetrazole, which had already been prepared in our laboratory. Furthermore, we prepared 5-[(2-methyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole-5-yl)methylsulphanyl]-1-phenyl-1H- tetrazole, 5-[(2-methyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole-5-yl)sulphanyl]-1-phenyl-1H-tetrazole and 5-[(2-methyl- 1,3,4-oxadiazole-5-yl)methoxy]-1-phenyl-1H-tetrazole from the...
