Czechoslovakia and the Brichah

9 May 2023, 5:00 pm CET

About Location / Accom.

Anna Kroupová (Charles University)

The talk will focus on the activities of the illegal Zionist movement Brichah in the context of the history of Central and Eastern Europe. As a case study for my research on the Brichah movement, I have chosen post-war Czechoslovakia, which became an important transit hub for thousands of Jewish survivors fleeing Eastern European countries for Palestine.
