After the liberation of Czechoslovakia in 1918 there arose two brothers as major intellectual figures.  One was Karel Capek.  Karel wrote R.U.R.   The word Robot comes from this play.  Josef wrote The Insect Play.   When Josef wrote The Insect Play he was concerned with the species becoming no more than a large insect colony.  Josef was a Cubist painter and was concerned with the Dada art of the unconscious.  After Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia in 1939, Josef was sent to a concentration camp.  He died in Belsen in April of 1945.
