Jewish heritage of Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia

This website aims to make accessible the complete database of the Jewish heritage sites of Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia. As such, the website serves as a tourist portal and a source of reliable information for historians, genealogists, and the general public. In the featured database, you may find current and historical photographs, detailed descriptions of the monument's condition, and the history of each Jewish heritage site. Those thoroughly documented cemeteries are featured here with their map and a table containing the dates and names of those buried. This website provides an invaluable source of information for all engaged in history and those looking for their ancestors to discover relations that were cruelly disrupted in the past. The website is managed by Matana a.s. (Department of the Administration of Buildings and Cemeteries), founded by The Jewish Community of Prague to manage its immovable property. Since 2002, the management includes heritage sites owned by the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic. More information.
