This thesis deals with the personality of a deputy and later senator Anna Chlebounová (4th December 1875 - 14th March 1946).

Samuel Štúr - A forgotten "teacher" of Slovak Awakeners
Jurámiková, Babeta ; Tinková, Daniela (advisor) ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (referee)
Samuel Štúr (1789-1851) is, as a public figure, usually perceived to be in the historical background: the father of Ľudovít Štúr. He is often mentioned in the context of his teaching career or his being in contact with František Palacký. He lived his life on the brink of the national awakening. Despite his close connection to the two leading figures of the national awakenings he fell into oblivion. The aim of this thesis is to describe the crucial aspects of his life utilizing fragment analysis and thus provide a closer understanding of his life circumstances. Furthermore, this thesis is attempting to depict the discrepancy between the enlightened and the romantic generation and their reciprocal role in the forming of national identity. Key words: schools, Kingdom of Hungary, Ľudovít Štúr, František Palacký, nationality
"The Way How Firmly the Rocks of the Giant Mountains Stand…" Jan Nepomuk count Harrach and his political activities in Cisleithania
Bouška, Jan ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Hlavačka, Milan (referee)
Jan Nepomuk, count Harrach (1828-1909) was a member of an antient aristocratic dynasty, an important squirearch, a politician and a member of the Conservative Great Landowners Party; but also, a Czech aristocrat. The aim of this work is to provide a detailed analysis of political activities, views and ideas of count Harrach, conveyed through his writings, articles and speeches presented on the Bohemian land diet; and to present him not only as a conservative faithful to his class but also as an aristocrat, who willfully claimed allegiance to ethnic-linguistic conception of the Czech consciousness. The work follows a narrower focus on Jan Nepomuk's activities mentioned above, however it attempts to put them in context of his life and historical period, which constitute inseparable context. The source basis for the study are first and foremost archives from the personal literary remains of count Harrach stored in the National Archives of Austria in Vienna. Alongside, the contemporary press and administrative sources have also been used. The presented work is also a contribution to the studies of the history of the Bohemian aristocracy and its political activities and attempts to balance two stereotypes that were and to some extent still are typical for this field of historical studies - the a priori...
"Forgotten" Aš region and his places of memory
Židov, Petr ; Hlavačka, Milan (advisor) ; Pokorná, Magdaléna (referee)
The town Aš, its whole region, used to be the place permanently inhabited by people of German origin, as all the historical documents report. After the end of the world war two, people of German origin were forced to leave their homes which were built and handed over throughout the centuries and therefore became the prominent bearers of Aš region tradition. This long lasting continuity of inhabitation by these people was unnaturally intrerrupted and many places and settlements lost their memories. The new residents had to build the relationship to their new homes from the beginning. The aim of this thesis is to describe the places of memory which are, owing to nationalistic and religious character of the region, entirely tied to German history, and by means of their analysis find out how the newcomers' relationship to their new homes developed. The focus will be taken on the time period after 1945 and, especially, time period after 1989 when, on account of easing political situation, the new and old memory places could be viewed more objectively than before.
