This project seeks to list representatives of all of the Jewish families from the Bohemia town of Ostrov nad Ohří (Schlackenwerth) in the Czech Republic (county/okres/Bezirk Karlovy Vary, region Karlovarský kraj).


The town is located in the Czech Republic in the Karlovy Vary Region at a foothill of the Ore Mountains about 10 kilometres (6 miles) northeast of Karlovy Vary and has a population of 16,999 (September, 2009).

The origin of the settlement named Zlaukowerde (Slávek's Island) at the confluence of Bystřice and Jáchymovský Creeks traces back to the beginning of the 13th century. The town charter for Ostrov was issued by Bohemian king John the Blind in 1331.

The town of Karlove Vary is a spa town situated in western Bohemia approximately 130 km (81 miles) west of Prague (Praha) and is the most visited spa town in the Czech Republic.

During World War II the castle served as nazi concentration camp. The population of Ostrov multiplied after World War II with a boom of uranium mining in nearby Jáchymov. The extensive housing blocks from the 1950s forming the new part of Ostrov are considered one of the best examples of socialist realism architecture in the Czech Republic. The town was known for production of Škoda trolleybuses for many decades, but this ended in 2004.
