The Web Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities 
Bohemia and Moravia

     Austria-Czech SIG's GemeindeView Project seeks to create a web-based encyclopedia commemorating all of the Jewish communities that once existed in the Bohemia-Moravia region.  The indices below provide alphabetical listings of all known Jewish communities in the region.  If you cannot find your ancestral town, please E-mail us and we will add it to the list.

     Austria-Czech SIG is soliciting contributors to provide descriptions of the various Jewish communities.  For examples, look at the current web sites for Ckyne, Mikulov, Rousinov, Safov  and Valasske Mezirici.  If you would like to contribute the description of one or more of your ancestral communities, or have additional information to contribute to an existing description, please click here.

     In many cases, Austria-Czech can assist people submitting descriptions by making sure that the submitter has access to various hard-to-find books, or by providing translations from Czech or German.  Contributions of money and time to Austria-Czech through the JewishGen JewishGenerosity Program will help facilitate this project.
