Francouzský slavista Jules Legras a jeho (znovu)objevený deník 
s. 247–269

Французский славист Жюль Легра и его (снова) найденный дневник

French Slavist Jules Legras and his (re)discovered diary
Ego-documents rank among the most important alternative sources that enable understanding of events and the motivations for people’s actions in the past. The study herein submitted draws attention to the existence of heretofore unknown diary of the distinguished Slavist Jules Legras. Legras’ fate and works are not well known to the Czech public, and therefore his career, professional publishing activities and also the place he occupied among his generational cohorts are also sketched out. Legras “entered” Czech history in several different ways. First of all, he took part as a representative of the French military mission in the Russian Civil War in Siberia. Content analysis of his diary also yields undisclosed and considerably critical testimony on the Czechoslovak legions and M. R. Štefánik. On the basis of study of this source we can begin to disclose the difficulties encountered in the development of a French Slavist who was positioned in this period between scholarship and politics. Legras, however, also taught in Dijon, which was one of the cities with a significant Czech presence in France (secondary school, university), which is another reason his testimony is of interest. Finally, the last subject treated is one which stems from Legras‘recurrent stays in Czechoslovakia is an analysis of his again frequently critical view of Czech-French relations during the “golden age” of Czech Francophilia.

Otázka identity Čechů a Slováků v Jugoslávii v letech 1939–1941
s. 297–322

Вопрос идентичности Чехов и Словаков в Югославии в 1939–1941 гг.

The Question of Identity of Czechs and Slovaks in Yugoslavia in the Years 1939–1941
This article analyzes the question of identity of members of the Czech and Slovak minorities in Yugoslavia in what was a very turbulent period for the Yugoslav state. Despite that the great majority of Slovaks along with a certain number of Czechs held Yugoslav citizenship; the Slovaks and Czechs living in Yugoslavia were not willing to agree with the abolishment of Czechoslovakia. Members of the Czech minority saw the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia as an occupied territory that had once been their homeland. On the other side, Yugoslav Slovaks, besides the fact that they also lost their original homeland, did not want to accept the Slovak regime due to its close cooperation with Nazi Germany and they did not agree with the strong German influence upon Slovakia. Even if the autonomy of Slovakia would had been acceptable, they did not want to reconcile themselves with the activities being taken by the Slovak government against Evangelicals. Therefore, the majority of Slovaks in Yugoslavia, who had been traditionally raised with Evangelism, sharply criticized the regime in Slovakia. The abolition of Czechoslovakia and the formation of a Slovak state and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia also acted to a certain extent upon the national consciousness of members of the Czech and Slovak minorities, serving to highlight the question of their identity. The article is primarily based on sources of Czech, Slovak, Yugoslav and German provenience as well as from period press materials.
Key words: Czech minority, Slovak minority, identity, Yugoslavia 1939–1941

Plán z let 1946–1947 na usídlení židovských uprchlíků z Polska v Československu
s. 323–341

План 1946–1947 гг. по поселению еврейских беженцев из Польши в Чехословакии

The Plan from the Years 1946–1947 for Settling Jewish Refugees from Poland in Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia played the role of a transit country in the migrations of European populations in the Second World War. In particular, transports with the repatriated Polish citizens who made up the largest group of the so-called displaced persons were passing through this territory. The change in the geopolitical situation in Central and Eastern Europe naturally had the effect that a great many Polish citizens also fled to the West through Czechoslovakia. Jews also illegally or semi-legally departed from Poland, usually heading for Palestine with the help of Zionist organizations. However, they often remained in camps for displaced persons, usually in the American occupation zone. Only a few of them made it to Palestine, and those who went, did so in secret. The overflowing camps were a significant burden on the American occupation authority, which is why a plan was developed to settle at least some of the refugees in Czechoslovakia. This article analyzes this subject, which had previously only been superficially documented, on the basis of close study of Czech sources as well as documents from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
Key words: Czechoslovakia, Poland, Sudetenland, Jewish refugees, Displaced persons

Juggling with Numbers: Estimates of the Number of Victims in the Civil War in Bosnia and Herzegovina and their Differing Interpretations
This study focuses on interpretive discrepancies in evaluating numbers of victims in the war between the constitutive nations of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Varying interpretations of research conducted on the numerical population losses have been caused by the long-term absence of a postwar population census. This article analyzes and summarizes discrepant calculations of the overall number of victims and the proportional losses of the individual nations. These sources were quantified by experts from the ranks of the nations involved in the conflict, demographers of the former Yugoslavia and also foreign researchers using varied methodological approaches. Their inconsistent, and in places entirely contradictory calculations (and subsequent interpretations) clearly illustrate to what extent the statistical discipline relies on the relevance of the data that is entered into calculations, and to what extent it can be used or abused for political purposes. At its conclusion, this contribution summarizes the partial quantitative data and its relevance in the reconstruction of an approximate range of the number of victims in the Bosnian conflict.
Key words: population census, wartime population loss, reconstruction of number of victims, Bosnians, Serbs, Croats

The Circumstances Surrounding the Deaths of Witold Hulanicki, Former Polish Consul-General in Jerusalem, and Stefan Arnold, Polish Journalist
(February 1948)
s. 389–408

Обстоятельства смерти Витолда Гуланицкого, бывшего генерального консула в Иерусалиме, и Стефана Арнолда, польского журналиста
(февраль 1948)

The document concerning the circumstances of the deaths of a former consul-general of the Second Polish Republic in Jerusalem, Witold Hulanicki, and a journalist, Stefan Arnold, which is herein presented, is kept in the archives of the Polish Institute and Sikorski Museum in London. Both of these men were Polish war refugees and stayed temporarily in Palestine, the British Mandate territory. They were killed by Jewish extremists from Lehi on 26 February 1948. The content of the document indicates that they were killed because they were influential anti-communists, and as such posed a threat to Soviet interests in the Middle East. The question of whether Lehi had been inspired by Moscow or perhaps infiltrated by Kremlin agents remains unanswered.
Key words: Witold Hulanicki, Stefan Arnold, Polish war refugees in Palestine, Lehi, assassination
