Czechs in the City: The Czech-American Experience in Cleveland

About our Blog | April 5, 2009

We, the Czech Your Public History class at Ursuline College, are seeking to interpret the Czech American experience in Cleveland, Ohio, through exploration of documented heritage, material culture, and the built environment with particular interest in family, faith, education, and labor. In effect, we are creating an immersion experience for our audience that will encourage further dialogue for connecting the present to cultural memories of these unique and vibrant people. Let us move you through time and present you with the living history of the Czech Americans in Cleveland. Come on, Czech your Public History.   (ABOUT created collaboratively by Czech Your Public History students!)

  1. Hello,

    I am currently studying abroad in the Czech Republic and I’d like to continue my language classes once I return to America. Unfortunately, I go to school at Oberlin college, which does not offer classes in Czech. I’ve been having a lot of difficulty finding a teacher in the greater Cleveland area, let alone a reliable and accredited one, so I was hoping that you might be able to help me. Do you know any tutors in the Cleveland area? By some miracle, do you know any out near Oberlin, about half an hour southwest of Cleveland?

    Thank you,

    -Andrew Flachs

  2. I came across your blog and enjoyed your work and your efforts for the Czech community in Cleveland, which my ancestors were a part of.

    I am looking for a student to help me with some research on a Czech ancestor in Cleveland who was very involved in the labor movement in Cleveland in late 1800 and early 1900.

    Might you or your professors know of anyone who is interested in doing some fee-for-service research on this Czech individual.

    Thanks and keep up the great work.
