Full recordShow full item record
AbstractIn 1849 were all ghettos in the Austrian Empire abolished which led to free movement and settlement of the Jews. This procuration started important economical, but more importantly social possibilities which were some of the reasons for Jewish emancipation. Before the year 1900 was determined the demolition (decontamination) of the Prague Jewish quarter, so called ghetto, which was perceived as one of the last symbols of the former unfree position of the Jews. The author of this thesis will examine novels from period 1900 1920 above all of Jewish, in German writing writers. The subject of the study will be whether and how did the people see ongoing existence of the ghetto, even though it was demolished, what kind of influence did this process have on Czech-German-Jewish relationship, how was looked upon the Jews by the majority society, how did the Jews see themselves, etc. The emphasis will be laid on the personal feelings and projection of the authors in the historical context. Assimilation of the Jews to the Czech and German population and the increasing Zionism will be taken into consider, but the examination of these processes is not the main focus of this thesis.
