The March 2005 edition of HADASSAH MAGAZINE has a story on
Moravia in a section called the Jewish Traveler. It gives some
interesting information on the past and present Jewish communities
with special mention of the town's of Brno, Olomouc, Holesov, Trebic,
Jihlava, Mikulov, and Zwittau/ Svitavy.
Personalities who once hailed >from this area like Tom Stoppard,
Alois Jeittles, Rabbi Oppenheimer, musician Eitan Otto Lustig,
artist Anna Ticho, and Israel (Robert) Blum who introduced beekeeping
to Palestine are also mentioned.
