This project is dedicated to the Jewish families who lived in Vamberk (in German: Wamberg) in Bohemia, Czech Republic.

Vamberk (Czech pronunciation: [%CB%88vamb%C9%9Brk]; German: Wamberg) is a town in North-Eastern Bohemia, in the Hradec Králové Region (in German: Königgratz) of the Czech Republic. It has nowadays c. 4,800 inhabitants.

It is in the vicinity of Kostelec nad Orlicí (in German: Adlerkosteletz), Rychnov nad Kněžnou (in German: Reichenau) and Doudleby nad Orlicí (in German: (Daudleb an der Adler).

The first written record of the town from 1341 mentions it as Waldenberg, in 1400 as Walmberg, and later as Wamberg, or in Czech Vamberk.

The city has been well known for lace production since the 17th Century. In the mid-17th century, Magdalena Grambová, a Belgian owner of a local estate in Vamberk, introduced Belgian lace patterns and a new technique of bobbin lace making using a lace cushion or pillow. Vamberk became a European centre of lace-making.
