The role of Czechs in the investigation of the Katyn massacre
Pokorná, Adéla ; Tumis, Stanislav (advisor) ; Mokryk, Radomyr (referee)
The Katyn massacre was one of the most brutal acts of the Stalin era, which took place in 1940 and started a several-year hunt for the culprit. The Soviet Union's biggest rival was Nazi Germany, which did not want to be wrongly accused of murdering Polish officers. But the incident had a much bigger impact than it might at first look. The Katyn massacre also had a significant impact for the Czech context. As part of the investigations, special groups were formed, made up of leading experts, such as doctors and journalists. These groups included a few representatives from the Czech lands, thanks to whom we can take an even closer look at the whole event.

Ivan Il'in's Concept of National Idea
Zemánek, Ladislav ; Nykl, Hanuš (advisor) ; Tumis, Stanislav (referee)
The thesis deals with the Russian thinker I. A. Il'in's lifework putting emphasis on social and political philosophy. In consideration of the coherence of all his lifework the thesis is also dedicated to Il'in's metaphysics, epistemology and moral philosophy interpretation and his philosophical method description. Il'in's concept of the Russian "national idea" and its position in the context of the thinker's philosophical system are analysed as well. The analysis of this concept is to indicate to what extend it could be of universal nature having a potentiality for general application. The thesis focuses on problems that have not been discussed in the Czech literature yet, although being topical, including Il'in's criticism of totalitarianism and Western democracy model, his specific conception of nationalism or emphasis on the legal consciousness and the legal state.
The Image of Bolsheviks in Memory of Czechoslovak Legionaries
Pácha, Martin ; Vojtěchovský, Ondřej (advisor) ; Tumis, Stanislav (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis was to describe the process of creation of the image and role of the Bolsheviks in the memory of Czechoslovak legionnaires. The main goal questioned was (i) how this image was generated immediatelly during the period of the legionnaries activities in Russia and (ii) how it has been changed after their return to Czechoslovakia. The first part of the analysis is based on legionnaries publications issued in Russia, namely the newspaper "Československý denník". The second part analyses the interwar legionnaries literature, mainly the texts of writers who commented on the Russian revolutionary events in general. Using the comparison of literary sources this work shows that returned legionnaries writers oversimplified Bolshevik theme in their texts and assigned them a stereotyped role of the enemy. Key words: Czechoslovak Legion, Literature of Legionaries, Bolsheviks, Image of the other
Escalation of the Vietnam war 1963-1965
Adámek, Václav ; Nálevka, Vladimír (advisor) ; Tumis, Stanislav (referee)
Některé války slavně začínají, jiné slavně končí. Válka ve Vietnamu začala nepozorovaně a když po třiceti letech končila, nejednalo se o slavný konec. Za tu dobu tří desítek let se v džungli poloostrova Zadní Indie vystřídali armády dvou západních mocností, Francie a USA. Vojáci a vlády ani jednoho z výše zmíněných států nedokázali najít účinný recept na vedení boje v džungli proti houževnatým partyzánům. Francii se nepovedlo navázat na své koloniální doby a během několika let se její veškerý kredit utopil ve vleklých bojích s hnutím Viet Minh, které demonstrovalo svoje vítězství ve vyčerpávající bitvě u Dien Bien Phu. Tím skončila francouzská část války. Bohužel pro Vietnam, nyní rozdělený na dvě části, vedený odlišnými idejemi a opět čekající na sjednocení, hrůzy války neskončily. Podporu Jižního Vietnamu převzaly pod svá křídla Spojené státy, které se zapřísáhly, že v nově ustanoveném světovém pořádku nenechají padnout žádný stát do komunistického područí. Tak tedy začala do Saigonu proudit stále větší vojenská pomoc. Zpočátku Vietnam nepředstavoval větší problém, vše se však začalo měnit, když snažení nepřinášelo žádné plody. Na počátku šedesátých let se Amerika angažovala v Indočíně již patnáct let. Onu finanční a materiálovou pomoc vystřídali vojenští specialisté, letadla a tajné jednotky. Nic z toho...
