This project seeks to collect all of the Jewish families from the town of Ziar nad Hronom, Slovakia.

The Jewish community of Ziar nad Hronom, located in central Slovakia, was established in the early 19th century, and the rabbinate was founded in 1848. The town synagogue was completed in 1889 and became the focus of the community. In 1919, 36 Jews were recorded living in Ziar nad Hronom. In World War II, the Jews of Ziar nad Hronom survived because they hid in the surrounding mountains. Following the war, all the congregants left Slovakia.
