The aim of this article is to deal with Jewish topics in Czech literature. Little attention has been paid to the images of Jews in Czech literature. They have only ever been two authors to write monographies about Jewish topics in Czech literature. The first is Oskar Donath who published in 1923 and 1930. The second is Alexej Mikulášek who published in 2000. Donath gathered a lot of valuable material in his books which summarized the themes and gave brief descriptions and evaluations of Jewish topics in Czech literature. Mikulášek’s methodologically ambitious work has been perceived as problematic.
