Futtera, Ladislav: Mužský Hill on 5 July 1933

Lětopis Abstract 2016 1: Futtera, Ladislav: Mužský Hill on 5 July 1933

The second part of this paper deals with the aftermath of the demonstration on Mužský Hill. Immediately afterwards the Czech press constructed a common image of the demonstration. When in October 1933 the general assembly of the League of Nations rejected the memorandum agreed during the demonstration, which demanded the recognition of the Sorbs as a nation with extensive cultural rights, the members of the Society of Friends of Lusatia in Czechoslovakia tried to give a new interpretation to the demonstration, presenting it as a general demonstration in favour of the Sorbs and against the Nazi regime. The demonstration was mentioned later in Czech Sorbian Studies as the most powerful gathering in support of the protection of Sorbian rights in the Inter-war period. In September 1945, twelve years later, a rally in memory of this demonstration was organised in Mnichovo Hradiště, which demanded that Lusatia be integrated into Czechoslovakia.
