NATIONALISM IN THE LANDS OF THE HABSBURG MONARCHY: THE CHALLENGE TO JEWISH IDENTITY

The Emergence of Slovak Jewish Identity in Interwar Czechoslovakia. Lecture by Rebekah Klein-Pejšova Jewish Studies, Department of History, Purdue University

The Emergence of Slovak Jewish Identity in Interwar Czechoslovakia

Admission Free    
RSVP to info@shcsj.org

Before the Interwar period, there was no "Slovak" Jewry.
This talk considers the emergence of a distinctive Slovak Jewish collective identity among the Jews of the territory of Slovakia, formerly northern Hungary, as they reoriented themselves in the new state of Czechoslovakia after the First World War. This process took place through Jewish national politics, communal architectural enterprise, and how they did - and did not - commemorate their war dead.
