How did the First World War transform the everyday life of hundreds of thousands of Czech factory workers? Under circumstances of acute material scarcity, what new significance did basic aspects of human life take on, such as where, how and what to eat, or under what conditions and with whom to work? How did the Great War change the organised workers’ collective?
The Students of History Association at the Faculty of Art, Charles University, would like to invite you to an introduction to the book by the historian Rudolf Kučera (*1980) entitled “A Rationed Life: War, Everyday Life and Labour Politics in the Czech Lands 1914 – 1918”, which was published in 2013 as part of the series History and the Present by Lidové Noviny.
