What role does a German minority play in current Czech-German relations? What is the role of the Federal Republic of Germany in shaping the cultural and associational life of members of the German national minority? These are the questions this paper intends to answer. In the introduction to the paper, attention is paid to the current socio-demographic circumstances of Germans living in the Czech Republic, so it is also concerned with numerical aspect. It also presents historic landmarks that moulded the life of the German minority. In subsequent parts of the paper, the focus is given to selected current issues of this nationality, and to the cognition of the role and actual power of the members of the German minority in current Czech-German relations, as well as to the role of Germany in the constitution of the German minority.
