Languages of publication
After the end of the Second World War an extensive movement of certain groups of the population began in the entire Central Europe. These evoke spontaneous efforts to find a new home and life, but also a wide implementation of compulsory and forced migration as a tool of the Czechoslovak residential policy. A part of it was also the unprecedented migration of Gypsies to which the Czech organisations reacted mainly negatively; as a result of the previous anti-Gypsy arrangements. The continuation of attitudes toward this culturally different and undesirable minority is in this instance undeniable. The spontaneous and purposeful migration waves of Gypsy immigrants from Slovakia, linked to a 'rushed system-less urbanisation' (N. Pavelcikova). The lack of provisions in terms of accommodation and labour opportunities resulted in problems and consequences with which, according to Czech authors, not only the Gypsy minority, but also the entire society is still struggling.
