The following information is from a photocopy the Balch Institute
made for the submitter 15 years ago. Unfortunately, they did not
write the reference on the photocopy but they said it was a from a book
written in the 1920s or 1930 by a person who visited many small Jewish
settlements in Central Europe.
According to the records in the Register it is likely, that in Hostice
by Volyne were settled a number of Jewish families. This is supported by
the evidence that the Jews of Hostice had their own synagogue and graveyard.
Over time, the living conditions in this small Jewish community detoriated
and a natural emigration began. When there were no conditions for
further existence of the community (Jewish ? or general? it is not clear
from the text), the community was abolished.

SYNAGOGUES: The synagogue and graveyard were taken over by the Jewish congregation of Volyne on January 30. 1899. The synagogue was sold to private citizens, Izak and Johanne Weil, for 20 Guildens. The Volyne congregation stipulated that a condition (servitut) be put in the land register: should the synagogue be demolished in the future, then, so the ground would not be desecrated, on the location of the synagogue nothing other than a garden would be built. Since June 3, 1902 the property has belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Trejbal, who accepted this condition in their deed.Kafka, Karel Weidental, Josef Bloch, Markus Lowy Gans, ucitel, Weigel, Jakub Weil, Marcus Skall, Abraham Bitternamm, Leopold Kohn, Pereles, Ruben Abeles, Abraham Meller, knihar, Karel Kohn, Izak Weil, Moses Bittermann, Benjamin Voticky.
CEMETERIES: The community of Volyne looks after the graveyard; however, the walls and the tombstones are in such poor condition that they are impossible to repair.
