Summary/Abstract: The author of the study deals with the phenomenon of building monuments in multi-ethnic regions in the past. Memorial culture, places of memory, collective memory, they all have belonged to the leading concepts of Western European cultural history for the last twenty years. Setting the monuments of Hans Kudlich in space and time is supposed to broaden our current knowledge of ethno-cultural frontier between the Czech and German population of the Czech lands towards the end of the monarchy. The study is not just a brief chronological list of unveiled Hans Kudlich monuments in 1848 – 1918 in the Czech lands. It does not provide their art description either. It puts the monuments into wider context of the memorial culture.
