Jewish Families of Malesice (Malesitz), Bohemia, Czech Republic

Project Tags

This project seeks to list representatives of all of the Jewish families from the Bohemian village of Malesice (Malesitz) in the Czech Republic.

MALESICE: (German: Malesitz). The first written mention of Malesice is from 1239 AD in a document of King Wenceslas I. The village changed owners several times (mostly in relation to the Catholic Church). At the end of the 19th century, most citizens were German speaking. There were about 500 inhabitants in 77 houses. Malesice was formerly separate municipality and were annexed to large neighboring towns only in the 20th century. Malesice is now part of Pilsen. The dominant feature is the Church of St. George from the 15th century and the Castle. Although chronicles of these communities are available, they were mostly led by Catholic chroniclers and there is almost nothing about the life of the Jewish minority.

Please do not confuse Malsice (Pilsen) with other places, eg Malešice. In English the transcription is the same, in Czech it is different - there is a caron (hook) over the letter "s" in the name of the Malešice. It is now part of Prague. Another similar-sounding village Malšice is in South Bohemia near Tábor .
