This study looks at issues related to using the concept of the so-called Maffia as representing the anti-Austrian Czech local resistance in the collective memory of interwar Czechoslovakia. Thus far the overwhelming majority of academic historical works have concentrated on the activities of the Maffia during the First World War. However, in this contribution the author examines the second life of this group when he looks for answers to questions concerning the origins of this group's name, who belonged to it, and the presentation and perception of the Maffia's activities in the public sphere in interwar Czechoslovakia.
