purpose of this section of the website is to provide the user
with contextual historical information that will help them make
sense of the interviews we conduct. In planning the website we
decided to include an historical narrative that went back to the
end of WWI and the creation of Czechoslovakia, but that
focused on events surrounding WWII.
The core section of the narrative is a
parallel history of the two
countries written by IB historians at the British International
School of Bratislava. In addition, there are a number of
specialist articles that seek to expand on the core parallel narrative.
These have been written by students in all the participant
schools. The hope is that the number of these articles will
continue to expand over the length of the project.
