Jewish Identity of Czechoslovak Jews and Its Influence on Motivation to Join the Hagana Brigade
Piskač, Jan ; Kalhousová, Irena (advisor) ; Kocian, Jiří (referee)
The present bachelor thesis deals with the relationship between the Jewish identity of Czechoslovak Jews and their motivation for joining the Haganah volunteer brigade. The thesis focuses on the period before and after World War II, tracing the development of Jewish identity and the relationship of the Jewish population of that time to the Czechoslovak state. The thesis aims to find out the motivation of Jews to join the Haganah military unit, which was to help the nascent state in its struggle for independence. This motivation is contextual with the Jewish identity in Czechoslovakia at the time. The thesis is divided into four parts, the first defining the concept of identity itself. The second part deals with Jewish identity in the period under study in Czechoslovakia. The third part describes the actual formation of the Volunteer Brigade for Israel and, in particular, the testimony of the motivation of the brigade members. The final chapter of the thesis analyzes the influence of Jewish identity on the motivation of brigade members to join their ranks. The thesis is a case study that uses primary and secondary sources to find the relationship between identity and the motivation of Czechoslovak Jews to join the Haganah Brigade.
