The Tapestry of Jewish Culture in South Moravia is really rich. For centuries, Jewish communities lived in South Moravia, alongside Czech and German populations. They contributed to the prosperity and growth of the land, fostering a harmonious coexistence that was tragically shattered by the Second World War. The war's impact was particularly devastating for the Jewish community.

During the communist era, a veil of silence descended upon the history and culture of South Moravia's Jewish population. Many significant landmarks were lost, some during the Nazi occupation and others in the years that followed under communist rule. Those that remained often faded into obscurity, their significance waning with time. Fortunately, since the fall of communism in 1989, efforts have been made to preserve these remnants of a rich cultural heritage.

Tracing the Footsteps of Jewish Heritage

Jewish communities established themselves in South Moravia as early as the 13th century, leaving behind a rich legacy of traditions, customs, and historical landmarks. Embark on a journey of discovery to uncover these hidden gems and gain a deeper understanding of their enduring impact on the region's cultural identity.
