Description In the chapter, two novels by German authors from Bohemia are discussed that were written in exile and deal with the contemporary situation in the Protectorate (Weiskopf: Himmelfahrtskommando, Winder: Die Pflicht). The conclusion of the analysis is that the image of Bohemia changes radically compared to older works of the same authors on Bohemian/Czechslovak topics - the Protectorate novels are more strongly 'ecumenical' regarding a common ideological basis and trying to appeal more to whoever may participate in anti-nazi efforts.
