Communal House in Litvínov
Daňková, Hana ; Pauknerová, Karolína (advisor) ; Toušek, Ladislav (referee)
7 Abstract This thesis presents the case of the Collective House (Koldům) in Litvínov, Czech Republic in the period of 1945-60. The house with its 352 flats was built between 1947- 1957 by a local chemical factory for its employees, mainly for families with children. House's collective facilities should have made child- and household care easier. Koldům was also supposed to offer colorful social life. I have tried to depict the beginnings of living in Koldům, the use of collective facilities and social life in the house, supported by memories of informants, who settled down in Koldům in the 1950s and have been living there since. The memories of the informants showed, that the newcomers used spaces and facilities of the house according to their lifestyles. Some services, offered to the inhabitants were therefore more successful than others. Considering the high living standards offered in Koldům, the inhabitants perceived living there as very status-important. This has changed a lot until today. Shared images of the past serve as a powerful tool of legitimization for the community of the original inhabitants, amongst them the informants belong, and serve as a tool, by which the difference between the past and the presence is emphasized. In contrast to the past, the presence is perceived as declining,...
