This project seeks to list representatives of all of the Jewish families from the Moravian town of Hustopece (Auspitz) in the Czech Republic.

Earliest known Jewish community was 15th century. 1900 Jewish population was 260. 1930 Jewish population was 103. Banishing of Jews in 1651, grant of residence in 1848, and establishing of Jewish community about 1860 were important events. Rudolf Honigsfeld, 1902-1977, architect, lived here. The unlandmarked Jewish cemetery originated in 1886 with last known Conservative Jewish burial before 1942.

The cemetery was established in 1886, then abolished in the 1980s and replaced by a park. A simple monument now stands here in reminder of the former cemetery.
