We will begin with issues of nineteenth-century emancipation and anti-Semitism to proceed to the milestones of Prague Jewish culture in the twentieth century, including the world-renowned Prague Jewish author Franz Kafka. Special emphasis will be placed on historical events that impacted Czech (and Prague) Jewish community in the twentieth century—the Holocaust and Communism. We will read the Holocaust author Jiri Weil and watch films about the Nazi-established ghetto Theresienstadt.
