The destinies of the Jewish population during the transports from Ostrava in 1939-1945
Grögerová, Anetta ; Roginer Hofmeister, Karin (advisor) ; Heroldová, Karolína (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with a regional-historical topic in connection with the Jewish transports from Ostrava in 1939-1945. The main aim of the thesis is to analyse selected testimonies of the survivors of the transports, the process of these deportations and to provide a missing insight into this region-specific and historical phenomenon. Above all, emphasis is placed on a neglected chapter of history, i.e. the very first transport of European Jews, which departed from the Ostrava railway station in 1939. And then the work deals with the transports to the Terezín ghetto between 1942 and 1945. A combination of classical identification of the subject matter using academic literature and recorded audio-visual interviews is used for this examination and subsequent comparison, drawing on the contents of the historical visual archive supported by the USC Shoah Foundation, thanks to access from the Malach Center for Visual History.
One topic, two responses? Jews and Shoah in Czechoslovakian and Austrian cultural memory in the context of the Eichmann-trial
Heroldová, Karolína ; Konrád, Ota (advisor) ; Mikulová, Soňa (referee)

Finding out, how and how much did the trial influence the presentation of Jews and Jewish victims in cultural memories or rather policy of past of both societies in comparison is aim of the thesis. On this basis, it is possible to reveal both differences and similarities between the two societies. Even if they seem to be completely different because of being sepparated by the Iron Curtain. The thesis devides into two parts. First part deals with the situation in post-war Czechoslovakia and Austria till the beginning of the 60s. It shows, how were the societies "set" when the Eichmann-trial came - what were the "prejudices", what was the policy of past dealing with. Second part includes the analysis of press-articles taken from different Austrian and Czechoslovakian newspaper and magazines (daily, weekly and monthly). From general to concrete is the way of the analysis which enables to show as the wider frame of the reaction as answers to the concrete questions. Outcomes are evaluated as continuously, as in the final conclusion.

The Shoah - Culture of Remembering in the Czech Republic after 1989
Heroldová, Karolína ; Kučera, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Koeltzsch, Ines (referee)
The culture of remembering Shoah in the Czech Republic after the year 1989 is the topic of this thesis. It deals also with the time between 1945 and 1989, when the Communists ruled in the Czechoslovakia. This time, especially the 60s, influenced the development after the year 1989, probably established the base for the culture of remembering. The thesis deals with the two big institutions (Terezín Memorial and the Pinkas Synagogue, by implication the Jewish Museum in Prague) and the new contemporary projects that focuses on the Shoah- remembrance (Train Lustig, Stolpersteine, Yom ha-shoah, Forgotten Transports etc.). The thesis tries to indicate if ever and how much the Shoah memorial culture has changed in Czech republic after 1989 by analysing the new memorial projects and comparing them to already established institutions. The author of each contemporary project, his/her Jewishness, the motivation, the way of presentation objective of the project, its social impact and success ( if can be measured) - all is subject to analysis. The thesis also lightly reflects international situation in memorial culture, and tries to set the Czech practice to international context. International context is important as Czech contemorary projects have been inspired by foreign projects.
