“That Czech Song of Ours” by Karel Hašler is a well-known song that arouses patriotic sentiments among Czechs all over the world. The aim of our study is to explore the situation in the Czech community in Croatia, a very interesting object of anthropological research, especially if the emic approach is used. The key concepts we examined in our qualitative research include “Croatian War of Independence” and “borders”. We also looked at the associated themes and problems. The Croatian War of Independence very much continues to be part of the community’s everyday life. It is still present, it is living history. In the language of our narrators, which is Czech, the Croatian War of Independence is referred to as the “Homeland War”.The emic approach thus helps us, as anthropologists and ethnographers, to understand why Hašler’s “That Czech Song of Ours” brings Czechs living outside of the Czech Republic to tears.
