Albert Speer as an utopian urbanist? The Plan for the Rebuilding of Berlin in Comparison with The Radiant City by Le Corbusier
Rambousek, Filip ; Mikulová, Soňa (advisor) ; Pelánová, Anita (referee)
During the first half of the 20th century several urban concepts, based on criticism of the cities of that time, had been formulated. Their purpose was to carry out a social change by the means of the change of the physical environment. The plans for the rebuilding of Berlin were produced at the same time as The Radiant City by Le Corbusier, which serves as a model of the above-mentioned concepts. The author is using a comparative method to find out whether it is even possible in general, and if yes, then also to what extent, to consider Speer's plans for the rebuilding of Berlin one of the urban utopias represented here by The Radiant City. The thesis itself is based on thorough analysis of both projects from the perspective of functionality, as well as their ideological roots and political and other goals. To include all possible factors that could have influenced the development of the plans, there is also space dedicated to the biographies of the two men and to the circumstances under which the plans were developed given the social and political situation.
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)
The thesis follows up the subject of Jews and Shoah in Czechoslovakia and Austria and their representation at the beginning of the 60s. By this time, the Eichmann-trial took place in Jerusalem. 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.
Nazi cultural policy in Düsseldorf 1933-1945
Mikulová, Soňa ; Pešek, Jiří (advisor) ; Pelánová, Anita (referee)
The aim of this diploma thesis is to understand how the Nazis used and subordinated art to their power. It was necessary to concentrate the focus of this study on a specific region of the Third Reich. The choice of Düsseldorf as a frame for cultural-political studies of the years 1933-1945 was made because the city had been a cultural centre since the 18. century and it was a home of many famous artists, such as Heinrich Heine, Robert and Clara Schumann and Felix Mendelsohn-Bartholdy.

Hlučín Soldiers in the Wehrmacht - Conflicting Narrative in the Czech Culture of Remembrance
Fojtíková, Anežka ; Mikulová, Soňa (advisor) ; Kochnowski, Roman (referee)
This thesis examines the public manifestations of the culture of remembrance of WWII in the Hlučín Region, with an emphasis on the commemorations of the fallen local soldiers fighting in the Wehrmacht. The aim of the thesis is to describe the public commemorations of WWII in the Hlučín Region, and to examine the relation between the regional and the mainstream Czech narrative. The core difference between the narratives arises from the fact that the Hlučín residents took part in WWII on the side of the Germans. I investigate the means used in the commemorations, as well as who initiates, organizes and finances the commemorations and what are the motivations of the commemorations' participants. Among the means, I focus on the analyses of the memorials and graves of the fallen soldiers, as well as on acts of piety. I concentrate on the period after the Velvet Revolution, when the particular narrative of the Hlučín Region ceased to be a taboo. In the first chapter I present the terms, theoretical concepts and methodology of the research. The second chapter deals with the history of the Hlučín Region and the identity of its inhabitants. In the third chapter I outline the Czech narrative of WWII during the communist regime and after 1989. The fourth chapter presents the results of my research of the...

The Media Policy of the U.S. Occupation Administration in Bavaria on the example of Radio Munich
Navrátilová, Šárka ; Šafařík, Petr (advisor) ; Mikulová, Soňa (referee)
of Bachelor Thesis The bachelor thesis "The Media Policy of the U. S. Occupation Administration in Bavaria on the example of Radio Munich" is dealing with a question, how the U. S. occupation administration influenced the functions of radio in Bavaria between years 1945-1946. It is focusing on a personnel policy and a form of control in the broadcasting. The compilation treatise shows that there was a considerable asymmetry between the American and German staff in Radio Munich. The number of Germans that could have participated in the programme production was gradually increased since the launch of broadcasting in May 1945, but there were Americans who had the authority, to decide about the employment of applicants and binding rules for all staff. The entirety of the programme was under U. S. control before its broadcasting. At the turn of the year 1945/1946, an obvious disagreement arose between members of the U. S. occupation administration and official U. S. policy towards Germany. Whereas the U. S. government required to withdraw its forces and make the radio broadcasting speedily independent, the Americans in the management of Bavarian radio didn't agree with that operation, because they were convinced the local personnel wasn't ready to take over full responsibility. They emphasised that the...

The thesis also analyses the mutual reception of the memory discourses in West Germany and Italy and examines the possibility of an interaction between their participants. The thesis uses the case study "Cephalonia" to expose how West German and Italian society came to terms with the past of the World War II in the period from 1943 to 1989.
