Communication networks of Wrocław diocese in the Late Middle Ages


In the time of Hussite wars the need of quick transmission and processing of information increased in the territory of Silesian princedoms. The leading character of the association of Silesian princes was the Wrocław bishop, who also managed the bureaucratically largest communication network. The study deals with the issue of the integration degree of administration structures of the diocese into political appearance of Wrocław bishops. Mainly preserved accounting sources of chapters and episcopal castle Jelcz are analysed. The author follows the thesis according to which the bishop was entirely dependent on the background of his immediate goods in his political appearance and did not use the administrative structures of the diocese when transmitting messages and exchanging information with his political partners.

Małgorzata Konopnicka: Socio-Economic Structure of Upper-Silesian Nobility in the Light of Vassal Tables of 1752

s. 19–38


Společensko-ekonomická struktura hornoslezské šlechty ve světle soupisů leníků z roku 1752


When Silesia was taken over by Prussia after 1740, the former Habsburg province was subjected to transformations meant to integrate it with the remaining parts of the Hohenzollern monarchy. The structural integration was accompanied by statistical endeavors aiming at thorough examination of the social and economic potential of the province. The vassal tables of 1752 are a typical example. They contained a census of nobility by name, which also featured information concerning the number of their estates, their location, topography and the type of duty, as well as male offspring and their occupations. As the source divides the data according to territorial distribution by district, it is possible to research the specifics of the socio-economic situation of Upper-Silesian nobility.


Key Words: nobility, Upper-Silesian nobility, Frederick II, Upper Silesia, vassal tables

Martin Jemelka – Ondřej Ševeček: Německé podnikání Baťova koncernu: Studie k hospodářským a sociálním dějinám hornoslezského továrního města Ottmuth (Otmęt) – část I

s. 61–86


Baťa concern’s German business activities: A study of the economic and social history of the Upper Silesian company town of Ottmuth (Otmęt)


The present study focuses on an important chapter in the history of the Baťa concern involving its penetration into the German market and its decision to establish a production factory and network of stores and services in Upper Silesia, in the locality of Ottmuth (today Otmęt). The study traces in detail the concern’s efforts to establish its specific enterprise system in the German environment, and to implement its own model of the so-called company town in the building of Ottmuth. Despite the fact that the study concentrates mainly on the development of the enterprise and the company town of Ottmuth until 1945, it endeavours, within the limitations of available source materials, to identify long-term developmental trends of this industrial locality and to place it in the relevant context of economic and social history. In view of the fact that this is the first study on the topic, it also aims to recapitulate facts established through archival research and to provide an overview, so that they may serve as a point of departure for further investigation. From the perspective of the topics and problems covered, the study is meritoriously focused on the issue of the economic and social development of the concern enterprise Deutsche Schuh-Aktien Gesellschaft Bata, Ottmuth A.G., including its successor companies (OTA Schlesische Schuh-Werke Ottmuth A.G.), and on the programme it implemented in building the company town of Ottmuth. The study traces the main milestones of the company’s organisational structure as well as its economic development, issues involving the organisation of labour, social and employment policies, the building of the company town and – sources permitting – also the relationship of the company management to state and local administrative institutions. The study concludes by outlining the Ottmuth factory’s main developmental milestones after 1945, when the entire region became part of Poland in the aftermath of World War II.

Red Army soldiers in POW camps in Lamsdorf and Teschen: The state of studies


The paper is an introduction to a problem of Red Army soldiers in POW camps of Lamsdorf and Teschen. So far this issue has not become a subject of an individual elaboration although it concerns a large number of nations and many thousand people. A review of the studies relating to the above-mentioned problem is presented using the following division: thematic articles devoted to POWs camps in Lamsdorf and Teschen in general or to various aspects of their internment (the highest number of such works deals with Soviet POWs), relations of prisoners of war, monographs and academic or scientific-popular papers devoted to camps or broader problems within the subject matter of POW related issues. The paper also shows the different character of studies on particular groups of POWs. It is concluded with the postulate which suggests preparation of a collective monograph devoted to the question of the Red Army soldiers in the complex camps in Lamsdorf and Teschen.
