World War II and the Issue of Refugeeism Focusing on the Diocese of České Budějovice in Light of Archive Materials from the Episcopal Archive
World War II brought incomparable suffering to many millions of humans. It is impossible to calculate how many people were forced to leave their homes by the military operations or decisions of statesmen and were either forcibly deported or preferred to emigrate. This study recalls the issue of refugeeism associated with this tragic segment of human history from a specific viewpoint, viz. refugeeism as part of the history of the diocese of České Budějovice from 1938 up to 1947 in light of archive materials from the episcopal archive. It engages authentic documents to show how the issue of refugeeism was perceived and frequently also personally experienced by Catholic clergymen of the diocese of České Budějovice at the time.
