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

About our project

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 hoping to create an immersion experience for our audience that will carry out further dialogue… connecting the present with the past 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!)
