Translocation plans of Jewish residences in the Lands of the Bohemian Crown from the period of 1727-1728

About us

In cooperation with the National Archives and the Research Institute of Geodesy, Topography and Cartography, v.v.i. , a web application was developed to make results of applied research of Jewish settlement plans from 1727–1728 available; these plans were declared Archival Cultural Heritage in 2018, and negotiations on their registration in the UNESCO World Heritage List are underway, where they would represent a unique cartographic collection.

The individual locations depicted on the Jewish settlement translocation plans are plotted on the overview map of the Czech Republic, and the application allows viewing plans including preserved archival documents, and their comparison with sketch maps from the Stable Cadastre and current aerial photographs. It is also possible to present data obtained on the basis of a detailed survey of plans related to the given site. The application allows searching for or filtering Jewish settlement plans according to several criteria. Other translocation plans can also be inserted into the application, which are still waiting for discovery and processing.
