The Jewish history and culture of the Bohemian countries have been enjoying growing interest for around two decades. Surprisingly, no innovative synthesis of this research has yet been available. This book, written by an international team of authors, is taking on the challenge of telling and analyzing the Jewish experience in the Bohemian countries as an integral and inseparable part of the development of Central Europe from the 16th century to the present day. It is just as much about contacts of the Jewish population with their non-Jewish neighbors as it is about the view of the province, i.e. the rural regions and communities away from the major urban centers of Prague, Brno and Ostrava. The German version of the collective monograph on the history of the Jews in the Czech lands from the early modern period examines selected Jewish communities and their demographic development over the last four centuries.
