Abstract

This article discusses the nature of inter-war land reform in Czechoslovakia and how it affected the Sudeten German minority. It assesses the degree to which the reform was determined by Czech nationalist motives, or whether it was primarily a matter of social justice. New evidence from the archives in Prague and Geneva (the League of Nations) is employed to show that there was considerable substance to Sudeten German complaints about a Czech nationalist agenda. For the Czech authorities, it was impossible to disentangle the national from the social dimension since the reform was one way in which they sought to consolidate a democratic but also 'Czechoslovak' national state.
