it created a new situation for all

The Interethnic Relations in Local Community of Zelów. The town of Zelów is situated in the heart of Poland, 40 km from Łódź and 80 km north of Częstochowa and according to census from 2008 has 8 003 inhabitants. What makes Zelów different from other ethnic enclaves in Poland? 1.The group of native people defines itself as Czechs
2.Represents denomination different form dominant Catholic religion - they are mostly members of Calvinist church which gathers the smallest number of believers out of all main Western Christian denominations in Poland This two factors Chechness and Calvinism were two main streams which had had an impact of everyday life in Zelów inhabitants from first days of emigrants settlement which had started from 1803 year to the mass exodus of Bohemian population after the Second World War. What is more,
the group of people of Czech origin
that remained in the town and their followers are still preserving religious
and national traditions of their ancestor. The Bohemians who were
Protestant had to leave their
own country because of religious prosecution
in the middle of 18th century. Firstly, they went to
Silesia then a some newcomers from Strzelin together with other emigrants from Opole and Syców region decided to move to new place. Zelów located north from their first Silesian farms appeared
to be a proper place for re-bulid bases of their
social, economic and what is the most important,
religious life in their own territory. Zelów has ca. 8 000 citizens today.
People with Czech origin are ethnic minority
in the town where Polish population is dominant. It may be estimated that only 5% of inhabitants have Bohemian roots. It means that the ethnic group only consists of about 400 – 450 members but inhabitants with Czech
origin play important role in the social
organization of Zelów. In 1817 they entered Calvinist Church. The ethnic and religious structure of Zelów was changed during the Second World War. In 1803, History of the Settlement a group of Czechs settled down in Zelów buying the from a Polish owner. The strong links between
the national identification
and the religious beliefs existed
in the population of the town
for many years. National heroes Jan Hus and Jan Amos Komensky – their lives are repleted with a great number of examples in which concern for religious matter mingles with fulfillment of national aspirations. The Czech language which in fact is a particular dialect, differs considerably from the standard version of Czech language; its characteristic features are Polish accent and borrowings. – the native speakers of this system of communication maintain that they speak “Zelowian”, stressing in this way exceptional nature of their speech. Jan Hus is the person whose martyrs’s
death I ceremonially remembered in Zelów
church and who is recognized as a spiritual
founder of this community. The national Identity of Czechs in Zelów Strong memory about
their ancestors. For Czechs residents of central Poland the sacred remains the crucial point of national references. Everyday prayers are said in Czech, the use of national language applies also to the reading of the Bible. The choir in the church can read the text and notes of religious songs from the old Czech songbook. There are many grave stones
on Zelów Protestant cementary where epitaphs in Czech
anguage had been inscribed. The Interethnic relations 1. The inhabitants of Zelów claims that the population of the town consist of Poles, Czechs and Germans.

2.The image of national structure is connected with religious congregations, which are active in the local community, there are strong links between those two systems and the hierarchy in the power: a) “The Czech church” – Calvinist church
b) “the Polish church” – The Catholic Church
c) “The German church” – Lutherian Church 3. There are no places to be distinguished which would be regarded as enclosed areas, isolated
and inhabited by only one ethnic group.

4. The economic problem – unemployment (40% can’t find a job)
5. PHARE program

6. The negative image of Czechs, according the survey, is framed by such features of character as: a) Being unfriendly towards Poles
b) Conceitedness
c) Isolation
d) Religion outsider 7. Conclusions a) The process of assimilation
b) The loss of the national character of the Calvinist Church
c) The group of “Zelowian Czechs” The curiosity 18th & 19th
