Hillel J. Kieval

University of California Press

This chapter examines different aspects of the late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Czech-Jewish relationship regarding the struggle over schools and language choice. It emphasizes that national movements typically have sought to link the political with the cultural, to achieve sovereignty or power for a particular group—defined variously in terms of language, broadly shared cultural traditions, and a sense of shared historical destiny—that is imagined to be cohesive and able to act in concert on the stage of history. It explains that because of the equation of culture and politics in modern nationalism and, just as importantly, because of the role that the technical and professional intelligentsia has played in promoting nationalism's claims, the issue of public education has often been paramount.

Keywords:   Czech-Jewish relationship, sovereignty, language, modern nationalism, public education
