About Book Series

Jews – History – Memory

The aim of this series is to provide Czech-speaking experts and the general public with access to current international research on modern Jewish history and culture in the Bohemian Lands (today, the Czech Republic) and central Europe from the eighteenth century to the present. It is a response to the lack of quality publications in Czech and an endeavour to inspire further Czech research on the Jews. The series focuses on a period of extraordinary change in Jewish (and non-Jewish) society: the emancipation of the Jews, changes in Jewish religion, their linguistic, social, political, and professional and academic inclusion into society, as well as the limits of such inclusion, the rise of modern antisemitism, the Shoah, migration, and the question of Jewish refugees, as well as the status of the Jewish community under the Communist regime. It includes both original works by Czech experts and translations of foreign works. The series supports a multidisciplinary approach, including social and cultural history.

The series is published by Nakladatelství Lidové noviny, and is prepared by the Institute of Contemporary History at the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Jewish Museum in Prague. It is edited by Kateřina Čapková and Michal Frankl. The editorial board includes leading experts on Jewish history: Benjamin Frommer, Hillel Kieval, Ines Koeltzsch, and Michael L. Miller.
