"The bloodbath in Kraslice." The tragic outcome of one demonstration on the life of the individual, the community, and the state:
The case study examines the events of one of a series of anti-government demonstrations in the summer of 1899. The Kraslice riots, which resulted in shooting by the gendarme assistance and several losses of life, are seen from the perspective of the various actors (opposition leaders, state apparatus, and leaders of the community), their motivation, and the dynamics of the demonstration being placed into the context of the political struggle between liberal and nationalist factions for the administration of the town and the furthering of their followers in provincial and the imperial elections.
