Wilkischen or Wilkischon in the Plzen region of Czech Republic is also known as Dolni Vlkys unter Wilkischen or Viky'ñ depending on the time period and governance of interest.

It was a small village, with a limited number of Jewish residents. Nearby towns included Tüschkov, Malesice and Stankov.

Members of the Freund and Loebner families were born and resided there in the mid 1800's.

It is very close to the city of Pilsen, in Bohemia. The Loebners were there from the 1700's. The Freund's who intermarried with them were from the neighboring villages of Malesice and Krimice.
