A Dispute (not only) over Invalidovna Building during the First Czechoslovak Republic (1918–1938)
Languages of publication
In Invalidovna House people disabled in different wars waged by the Austrian Monarchy were accommodated and many of them lived there with their families. An important change occurred after the end of World War I as injured soldiers were returning from the war fronts. There were two parallel structures caring for the war invalids, independent of each other. The first system was managed by the Ministry of National Defense, focusing on war invalids; the other one, organized by the Ministry of Social Care, cared for civil invalids. There were a number of differences between the two groups both in the level of their pensions and in the level of medical care and unemployment grants. The dispute over Invalidovna House was not a mere dispute over one building in Prague. The core of the affair was the organization of war invalids’ care, namely the endeavor to integrate those people in the healthy part of society and to enable them to participate in active economic life.
