Bibliographic information


"Czechs, Slovaks and the Jews, 1938-48 offers a valuable corrective to the complacent view that Czechoslovakia was somehow immune from anti-Semitism. It simultaneously highlights the extent to which Czech anti-Semitism tended to be upstaged by Czech German rivalry. This important contribution will be of interest to students of nationalism, Czechoslovak politics and Jewish history alike." - The Journal of the Historical Association
