    Post-war Czechoslovakia and Poland developed different policies towards the Jews. Whereas the Czechoslovak government refused to acknowledge the rights of the Jewish national minority, the Polish government accepted, though only temporarily, the right of Jewish minority to distinct minority policy. The main argument made in this article is that even though recognition of Jewish nationality in Poland was temporary, lasting only until 1949, it had a far-reaching impact on the post-war history of Jews in Poland. A comparison with Czechoslovakia elucidates the difference. The condition of the Jews in each country differed from that in the other in institutional infrastructures, linguistic conditions, and the extent of recognition and appreciation of the Jewish communities re-established by the Jewish refugees.
