Among the professions on the tombstones, you will “find” rabbis and Talmudic scholars, newspaper owners, writers, editors, altruistic supporters of Hungarian arts and even captains of Hungarian industry graced with the title of Baron. The cemetery is a memorial of a peaceful, prosperous era for Hungarian Jews.
A project by Louis A. Davidson and now hosted by the Bet Hatfutsot web site, Synagogues360 allows you to visit individual synagogues located all over the world, by means of interactive 360 degree panoramic photos. You can look around, zoom in, explore details. The web site also has put together a number of thematic “Synagogue Tours” that you can follow — linking synagogues by architectural or artistic style. Třebíč is a small town in the Czech Republic not far from Brno that has one of the largest and most intact old Jewish quarters in central Europe. The Quarter includes two synagogues, the Jewish town hall, and many other buildings amid the streets and squares of the original layout of the district. The old Jewish cemetery spreads out on a hill above. The ensemble of the Jewish Quarter, the old Jewish cemetery and the nearby Basilica of St. Procopius are included on the UNESCO roster of world cultural heritage sites; among the few specifically Jewish heritage sites on the list.
