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.

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.

Papežová, Kateřina ; Dimitrov, Michal (advisor) ; Konrád, Ota (referee)
The thesis "The Olympic Games in Munich as a Venue for the Political Rivalry between the FRG and the GDR" deals with the use of sport for political purposes by the two German states on the specific example of the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972. These Olympic games were a breakthrough for both countries. For the FRG as a host country, they created an opportunity to show the world, a new and modern Germany. However on the other hand, the GDR could use it's first equal participation with an independent team in the Olympics to it's own advantage. The first part of the thesis is focused on the development of German-German rivalry in the Olympics. The next chapter describes the Olympic games in Munich and also answers the question; what the two German states wanted to achieve, how they wanted to achieve their goals and which one of the German states was more succesful in overall rivalry through the use of the games. Attention is also paid to the influence on political rivalry between the two states of the Palestinian assassination at the games. The conclusions of the thesis are supported by the analysis of the response of the political rivalry of the GDR and the FRG at the Munich Olympics in print media.

Deutschová, Kristýna ; Kučera, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Konrád, Ota (referee)
Between the German speaking population in the territory of Czechoslovakia, in years 1938 to 1945, was a group of people who were against the Nazi politics and who showed their will to defend the Czechoslovak country. Many of them participated actively too, mainly through foreign resistance, and a lot of them were imprisoned in concentration camps or even condemned to death. This bachelor thesis is about German anti-fascists in Czechoslovakia after the year 1945 and it partially focuses on the area of Carlsbad. After the definition of problematic concept anti-fascism and foreshadowing the position of anti-fascists in Czechoslovakia after the signature of the Munich Agreement, there is a description in individual chapters that are describing the development of the situation of German anti-fascist in the territory of Czechoslovakia after the World War II and conditions that were in place when the anti-fascist transports were leaving the country. In the last part of the thesis there is an outline describing the development of a situation of German anti-fascists in the area of Carlsbad. This thesis is trying to examine the development of a situation of German anti-fascist, in continuity with other parts of the land, and to define incidental differences.
GDR-Nostalgia in the Former East Germany and Politics of Memory of the PDS
Novosadová, Alena ; Konrád, Ota (advisor) ; Šmidrkal, Václav (referee)
In 1990 when the GDR and FRG were united, there was a lot of optimism about the future of the new state. However, after few years after this historical event, both West and East Germans felt disillusioned by the transformation process. The sensation of the East Germans was named GDR-nostalgia or the so called Ostalgie, nostalgic longing for the former GDR. This feeling was rooted both in the objective socio-economic situation and in the feeling of loss in the biographies of the East Germans. This paper deals with the political dimension of the GDR-nostalgia, focusing on the political party PDS, a successor party of the communist state party SED. Despite the pessimistic prophecies about the PDS the party was growing steadily in the East. The East Germans felt that the party represents their particular interests in the united Germany. Yet the PDS didn't use a chance to deal critically with its controversial history. The hypothesis is, that the party, by presenting an idealistic version of the GDR past to the public and their potential voters, tried to strengthen the nostalgia feeling in order to gain votes. To prove the thesis the structure of the party, its program and history institutions will be examined. The concept of politics of memory will be described.

In the first part I am trying to describe especially the reasons of this event, its course with focus on crucial moments, which influenced the following course of the uprising. I am also focusing on results, which this event had on other social-political development of the divided Germany. In the second part of my work I am characterizing the immediate interpretation of this event, created by the biased press in DDR and ČSR. In each country I will investigate the interpretation in party-, labor unions- and youth press. With consideration of control and censorship mechanisms, which in each country got concrete outlines, during investigation of interpretation of this event I will try to search for differences between periodicals and later between the two countries. I will observe, how each periodical characterize the event and if some unbiased facts and thoughts could have appeared. In comparison between the countries, my question is, if it was necessary the information coming from eastern Germany designated for Czechoslovak...
