Hillel J. Kieval

University of California Press

This chapter is concerned with the changing nature of collective and individual identities, the shifting attachments to “community” and to “place”, the breakdown and reconstruction of cultural and political alliances, and, above all, with the structural elements—as well as the connections across time—that make it possible to speak of a complex, yet coherent, “Jewish” experience in the Czech Republic. It focuses specifically on Jewish life in the Czech lands—the regions of Bohemia and Moravia, which today are synonymous with the Czech Republic—from the late eighteenth century to the twentieth century.

Keywords:   community, Jewish experience, Czech Republic, Jewish life, Bohemia, Moravia
