Germans In Czechoslovakia (1918–1938)
The German-speaking population in the interwar Czechoslovakian Republic, 23.3% of the population at the 1921 census, is usually reduced to the Sudeten Germans, but actually there were linguistic enclaves elsewhere in Czechoslovakia, and among the German-speaking urban dwellers there were "ethnic Germans" and/or Austrians as well as German-speaking Jews. 14% of the Czechoslovakian Jews considered themselves as Germans at the 1921 census, but a much higher percentage declared German as their colloquial tongue during the last censuses under the Austrian-Hungarian Empire.
Famous quotes containing the word germans:
“The Germans believe that, no matter where, they can get by on knowledge alone. Art, however, requires skill.”
—Franz Grillparzer (17911872)
