Moravské Budějovice

Jewish Cemetery in Moravské Budějovice

We do not know exactly when the Jews settled in Moravské Budějovice, but we know that they lived here in the second half of the 14th Century. For a long time, the deceased Jews had been buried in the nearby cemeteries in Třebíč, Jemnice and the Police. Later, their own cemetery was founded, which however ceased to exist in the 18th century. In 1908, the town provided the land and a new cemetery was established. The first funeral took place on May 11, 1909, the last burial in 1942. The site for the Jewish cemetery was determined by the town council about 2 km southwest of the town centre in the fields along the road to Vranín on the plot in the ´Na Vejhonu´ field track also called In the Great Oak Shrubs, where formerly there used to be a grove named Dubina at manorial Velký (Large) Pond - now house no. 795 Husova Street. The donated land of 1507 m2 had not been booked until 1914.

Jewish Cemetery
Třebíč

Jewish Cemetery

Jeden z největších v Česku

One of the largest and best preserved Jewish cemeteries in the Czech Republic, which was used until recent time. It is located on the northern side of Hrádek and there is a long and winding carriage way connecting the cemetery with the centre. In the written sources, it is mentioned for the first time, albeit indirectly, in 1636 in connection with the Manorial Order on the Burial of Parasitical Jews. According to previous findings, the oldest Jewish tombstone is dated from 1631, so the cemetery must have been built some time before. Where the cemetery of the medieval Jewish community was located, it is not known (the tradition places it near the Benedictine monastery, today´s castle, to the space below the walls). At the beginning of the 20th century (1903) a valuable, well-preserved ceremony room was built in the cemetery. Due to its cultural and historical value, the Jewish cemetery along with the Ghetto and the Basilica of St. Prokopius was declared a national cultural monument (2002) and was registered in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2003.
