This project attempts to collect and record Jewish families connected to the small town of Litohlavy or Litochlau or Litohlau in the Plzen Region in the Rokycany District about 3 km NorthWest of Rokycany.

Litohlavy was mentioned in 1363. It belonged to the feudal domain of Rokycany from 1498 until 1850. In the 19th century some iron ore mining developed in the territory of Litohlavy, however the village had mostly rural economy. In 1980-1994 the village was under administration of nearby Rokycany.
