Language revision[edit]

Ok, tried to remove some of the POV material... maybe it will be seem something different

Just out of curisoity, is there any article in this explaining WHY Hoffman demonstratively left Künstlerhaus? And why is the Siebener Club reffered to as "so-called"?

Hoffmann was no Czech[edit]

There had been a lot of changes during the 20th century in Central Europe. Wide parts of nowadays Czech Republic for instance were populated by the so called German Bohemians, people who were Germans by culture and language and who distincted themselves from the Czechs or Slovaks. Being citizens of the Austro-Hungarian Empire they can be called Austrians or German Austrians. After 1945 they were driven out from Czechoslovakia, and most of them fled to Germany.

The changes done by are wrong. Hoffmann was a German Bohemian. His home town Pirnitz (today Brtnice) near Iglau (today Jihlava) was then a German town situated in one of the German enclaves of Moravia (also Brünn, nowadays Brno, was situated in such a German enclave)[2]. Hoffmann couldn't even speak Czech. He was welcoming the Anschluss of Austria by Germany in 1938. - In other words: If Hoffmann would be Czech, then Immanuel Kant would be Russian or rather Kaliningradian, and my mother as East Prussian would be Polish. -- Achsenzeit (talk) 22:49, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
