Bohemia and Moravia, the Cultural Field of Germans and Czechs
Míla Sasková-Pierce, PhD
The Czech lands went through a tumultuous history involving many nationalities.  Over the centuries, Czechs and Germans lived side by side in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. There were intermarriages, cultural collaborations, and competitions.  Charles University in Prague, founded in 1348, attracted European intellectual elite throughout the centuries, including Copernicus and Einstein.
 
Wars of succession and religious strife undid many Czech intellectual achievements.  However, the shared territory created a space for unique cultural endeavors, the achievements of which became a part of true European culture. During the German and later Czech immigration waves, these achievements contributed to US society, and became a part of the Greater Germania, and Greater Czechia diasporas. Dr. Saskova-Pierce will include personal experiences from Prague, as shown in this 1968 picture of her confronting Russian soldiers. She will also discuss the relationships of Czech and Bohemian immigrants to German immigrants in Nebraska.
 
Germanic Interest Group led by Dennis Schulte.
Presentations and discussions would be of interest to those tracing their German heritage.  Please join us for this session and bring a friend!  Sessions are open to the public and visitors are always welcome.
