Who We Are

Society for the History of Czechoslovak Jews was established in the early 1960s in New York as the successor to the inter world war Society for the History of Jews in the Czechoslovak Republic (Společnost pro dějiny židů v Československé republice) founded by members of B'nai B'rith.  Its founding members included luminaries of history, sociology and other disciplines. The Society's three volumes of The Jews of Czechoslovakia published in the 1970s and early 1980's remain indispensable to students of European history and lovers of Czechoslovak Jewish heritage. 
In recent years the focus of the Society has been annual Holocaust commemorations as well as smaller initiatives pertaining to Jewish heritage in the Czech and Slovak republics.  In 2011 we initiated a series of lectures on topics related to the history and culture of Jews in the two countries.
The 2014 Lecture Series is comprised of two lectures and a movie presentation.
