Drug Policy in the Third Reich: Ideology vs. Practice
Staňková, Marie ; Šmidrkal, Václav (advisor) ; Kučera, Rudolf (referee)
This final bachelor's thesis deals with the topic of drug policy in the Third Reich and aims to map the contradiction that arose in the challenging conditions of World War II between the official Nazi ideology, on which the legislation of that time was based, and practice in the German army and among Nazi top leaders. In the first part, the presented paper deals with legislation concerning narcotics and addictive substances in the period of the Weimar Republic and subsequently in the period of the Third Reich, including several international conventions that were binding for the member states of the League of Nations, where Germany was a member till 1933. In the second part, the paper focuses on scientific research in the field of chemistry and pharmacy, in the thirties of the 20th century which resulted in development of addictive stimulants. Their use in the armed forces of the German Wehrmacht and among the highest Nazi leaders is then dealt with in the third part of this paper. In conclusion, the thesis summarizes the discrepancy that arose in this regard during the Second World War between the state-constituting Nazi ideology and war practice.

The Fight for the Freedom of Speech: Baden and German Liberalism in the 1830s
Návojová, Kateřina ; Kučera, Rudolf (advisor) ; Emler, David (referee)
This master thesis examines the political and particular media situation in 1832, with the stress on spreading the liberal ideas and their attempt to influence the public via one typical German journal for this period. Over six months, there was an extraordinary situation in Baden, when the censorship was restricted and suddenly there arose, for this period, unexpected possibilities for journalists. As a reaction to reduction of censorship, the journal Der Freisinnige was established. Although its existence was short-lived, manifestation of liberal values and reflection of contemporary opinions is evident. This journal was more important and powerful than any other because of the cooperation with one of the main initiators of liberalism, Karl von Rotteck, who was also active in politics. This connection of two roles was very powerful. Freedom of speech, understood as one of the major liberal demands, allowed the practical promotion of liberal ideas among citizens. This case study pays attention to this particular year, within the political inclinations and tendencies over the period 1815-1832 of the Grand Duchy of Baden and former German Confederation. There were clear connections to the events in the first third of the nineteen century, that made the short-time fall of censorship happen. At the...
University in the City Space: Charles University and University of Vienna
Kavan, Ondřej ; Kučera, Rudolf (advisor) ; Konrád, Ota (referee)
This thesis is a comparative case study that employs the disciplines and subjects of urban studies, history of universities and city planning. It presents and compares the history of the built environment of the Charles University Prague and the University of Vienna from their very beginning until present days. Main subject of the study therefore is the (spatial) city- university relationship and the position of the respective university in it. How many areas does the university use? What are these like? What are the distances between each of them and what is the distance to the attractive downtown? What are the respective historical contexts of all the development plans, which of them became reality and which not? These research questions are answered in the comparative analysis of the two universities. A second subject of the paper is the analysis of the agility of the universities who are facing some global development trends of the university strategic planning and have to deal with them both now and in the future. Do the development plans of the university support the interdisciplinary cooperation, globally competitive science or it's own position in the host city in order to support own attractiveness and efficiency? All these questions are discussed and answered.

Skotnicová, Anita ; Šmidrkal, Václav (advisor) ; Kučera, Rudolf (referee)
The 1960s were marked by a large number of demonstrations in the Western world, mostly attended by students. The increased civic activity of the young generation first appeared in the US when students protested against the war in Vietnam. In the Federal Republic of Germany, the events in Vietnam also belonged to important topics, but at the same time long-term problems of the society escalated too. There have been changes at both political and cultural levels. In the second half of the 1960s, a series of stormy demonstrations took place in Germany over this constellation. This thesis focuses on the "Socialist German Student Union" (SDS), which became the imaginary engine of the student protest movement of the 1960s. At the beginning, the work presents a global context, then the main topics and milestones of the development in Germany in the political, social and cultural spheres. Secondly, the development of the SDS is outlined, with an emphasis on the main themes of the association. Then, the course of the demonstrations in the 1960s, SDS activity and the subsequent development after 1969 is analyzed. Finally the work offers an evaluation of SDS success in advancing its long-term goals in the 1960s.
Intersexuality in Germany. Scholarly ans Societal Debate around the Law Amendment in 2012-2013
Misařová, Adéla ; Kučera, Rudolf (advisor) ; Emler, David (referee)
Germany was the first country in Europe that took an important step to helping intersex people. Since the 1st of November 2013 the intersex new-born have been enacting an opportunity to withhold information about the gender in its personal documents. Germany is now among the few countries in the world that gave intersexed people the opportunity to stay for a lifetime, if they so desire, without a gender. Intersex people are classified as individuals who are born with ambiguous sex characteristics (such as genitalia, chromosomes and hormones). Therefore they can't fall into either of the male or the female sex category. Amendment to the german Civil Code, which allowed marking gender of intersex children in its personal documents with the letter "X", was preceded by intense debate in the field of professional, political and social. Partial discussions of this topic took place in Germany since the 90s and were carried out thanks to the interest groups of intersex people. The most important stimulus for the amendment to civil code was the opinion of the German Council for Ethics from February 2012. The loudest argument in discussions appeared, pointed in particular to the need to ban dangerous surgeries on intersex children, which caused them health problems in adulthood. Other reason for this...
The end of Czech-German coexistence in Liberec region
Misařová, Adéla ; Kučera, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Kučera, Rudolf (referee)
Liberec played an important role in czech-german relations since 1918, when the province Deutsch Böhmen was created. Its importance grew even further during World War II as it became the capital of the Liberec sudeten and it was also highly known as the birthplace of Konrad Henlein. In the city, there lived an estimated 80% of the German population at the end of the war, and this fact influenced the course of both liberation and the subsequent expatriatrion actions. Liberation was not expected with enthusiasm at all, as was the case in inland cities. It was rather characterized by confusion, uncertainty and fear of the Soviet Army, which was getting revenge for Germans of war injustice. The liberation meant the end of nearly seven years of German oppression, however, it was not celebrated. Many Germans were leaving the city during the war, including a large part of the Nazi leadership. Conversely, three main groups of people were coming back to the city: the returnees came here from the war, people who moved after the occupation to inland and also people who had nothing to do here and just wanted to start a new life. The situation at the time was very confusing and literature often presents population and its ethnic composition differently. Considering the large number of German population, the...

The relations between Czech and German political representation in the years 1918 to 1924 are described by the example of the German Social Democratic Workers Party in Brno.

The next part of the thesis follows up the development of the relationships of the German Social Democrats towards other Czech and German...
