Erased from History: Jewish Migrants in Postwar Czechoslovakia
Almost all historians writing on the subject have described the postwar situation of the Jews of Czechoslovakia as a continuous loss of people, first because of the Shoah and then because of survivors’ emigrating or “assimilating” to Czech (or Slovak) communist society. In contrast to this dominant picture, Kateřina Čapková argues that it was surprisingly only after the Shoah that one sees in Bohemia Jewish communities that followed rites close to those of the Hassidim.
