Reflection of the Sudeten German question in the Czech press in the crisis year 1938: Právo lidu and Venkov
Holmanová, Kateřina ; Kučera, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Konrád, Ota (referee)
anglicky The purpose of this thesis is to explore how the papers Právo lidu and Venkov, viewed the Sudeten German question in 1938 and how they expressed their opposition to the situation. The first key affair of 1938, which greatly strained coexistence between Czechs and Germans in Czechoslovakia, was the Anschluss of Austria, which many Sudeten Germans enthusiastically supported. This soon became the inspiration for a more severe solution to the Sudeten German question. The Anschluss supplied many Sudeten Germans with the conviction that the disputed Czechoslovak border areas would be annexed by the German Reich. This contributed towards increased hostilities between SdP supporters and Czechoslovak authorities. In negotiations with the government, Henlein pretended to be interested in improving the position of the German minority in Czechoslovakia, but in reality, the SdP sought to make the Sudeten-German issue a subject of international policy negotiations. The increased conflict, hand in hand with the gradual sharpening of SdP policy, radicalized the German population, primarily affecting the activist parties, who gradually lost all remnants of their support. Considering the tight scope of this bachelor thesis it would be impossible to record and recount the entire media spectrum of the period,...
Beatified Gerhard Hirschfelder - the contribution of a religious figure to the creation of a transnational site of memory
Peltanová, Tereza ; Konrád, Ota (advisor) ; Swider, Malgorzata (referee)
Řešitel: Bc. Tereza Peltanová Studijní program: Německá a středoevropská studia Název práce: Beatified Gerhard Hirschfelder - the contribution of a religious figure to the creation of a transnational site of memory Abstract The diploma thesis deals with the origin and development of the cult of the German priest Gerhard Hirschfelder. In the 1930s he worked as a popular chaplain and youth pastor, first in the border village of Czermna and then in Bystrzyca Kłodzka. He disagreed with limiting the power of the Roman Catholic Church by national socialists. He paid for his attitude with his life in the Dachau concentration camp. After the end of the war, the original German and Czech population of the area of Kłodzko was expelled and replaced by Polish people. Since the late 1990s, Hirschfelder has been worshiped by all three nations. He was beatified in 2010. The thesis is a case study of a transnational site of memory (lieu de mémoire). It examines under what circumstances, thanks to which actors and in what form the cult of the German martyr arose on Polish territory. Based on that information, the thesis tries to deduce what symbolism the figure of the priest currently carries for individual national groups.
Movement from the Centre to the Peripheries: the Social Life of Prague Germans in the Peripheries during the First Republic
Tvrdá, Kristina ; Konrád, Ota (advisor) ; Nieć, Grzegorz (referee)
The master thesis examines the development of social and cultural life of Prague Germans in the 1920s and 1930s in selected Prague suburbs. Prague's German population formed a unique society in Czechoslovakia during the interwar period, which to a large extent shaped the overall multi-ethnic character of the city itself. Although the German-speaking population had to cope with their position as a national minority and nationalistic anti-German sentiments in the new state, their numbers grew, and their society developed. The main place of social life for Prague Germans remained the centre of Prague, but with the establishment of Greater Prague in 1922, there was an escalation of their migration from the interior to Prague, but also from the historic centre of Prague to the newly annexed districts. Thanks to the status of the capital city and the development of urban infrastructure during the 1920s and 1930s, Prague offered a new space of Prague suburbs, which the German population of Prague used for their cultural or economic development. Even though this was an area inhabited by only a small number of Prague Germans, they clearly contributed to the development of individual neighbourhoods. In some cases, these were only individual places associated with Prague Germans, such as theatres or...
