Private Tour to Polna, Cerekev and Boskovice

Product detailed description

This is a remarkable ghetto founded in the 17th Century, consisting of more than 30 picturesque Jewish houses built around two squares between which a 1680's shul stands. A murder of a Christian girl, Anezka Hruzova, found near Polna in 1899, triggered a wave of anti-Semitic hysteria in which an innocent local Jew, Leopold Hilsner, was falsely accused and sentenced to life, only to be later victoriously defended in court by a young professor, Tomas Garrigue Masaryk, who debunked the centuries-lasting blood libel as a nonsense for all Czechs. He later became the first democratic Czechoslovak president.
