ČESI V BRATISLAVE 1919 – 1945: ADAPTÁCIA A MARGINALIZÁCIA
Czechs in Bratislava 1919-1945: Adaptation and marginalisation
Languages of publication
The paper addresses the issue of the marginalisation of an ethnic group. The example taken is the Czech community in Bratislava in the period from 1919 to 1945, when it underwent processes of adaptation to the new social milieu and marginalisation as a result of political development in Slovakia. The question is how the Slovak environment accepted Czech migrants and how they managed to come to terms with it, how their social acceptation changed, why they became a political problem, how they became a marginalised social group and how the Slovak government, which emerged in 1938 as a result of political changes, took account of them. This paper does not merely aim, however, to analyse the degree of their adaptation and the gradual process of marginalisation: there is also an attempt to make information available about this little-known aspect of the history of the city.
