More Information:

The first reports about Jews settled here come from the 2nd half of the 17 century, early 18th century.

A well-established Jewish religious municipality operated in Mlada Vožice for a century.

In the middle of 19th century, the Jewish settlement was small, only 8 families were allowed to live there, the highest number of the Jewish population in Mladá Vožice was in 1890 with 169 people. From then the number only dropped and the last pre-war population census, only 37 citizens reported to belong to Judaism.

The concentration of Jewish houses used to be in today's street northwest of the square that is still called Jewish, some of the houses are still preserved after various reconstructions.

The tragic end of the presence of the Jewish population was marked by the German Nazi occupation. 68 people were deported to the extermination camps from the town and the surrounding area. Families who died - Fleišlova, Katzova, Jedlinského, Klinenberger, Mahlerova, Pachnerova, Porgesova, Polackova, Rosenbergova, Schmolkova, Silbersternova, Sommerova, Strakova, Stránského, Synkova, Weinstein, Winternitz and some individuals. The youngest victim was then 5-year-old Ji Nejí Klinenberger.
Most Jews in young age perished in Auschwitz and Malé Trostinec. It is not known that anyone survived, and no one returned to their hometown.
