The jews of Saaz / Žatec
Why we are concerning ourselves with the history of the Saaz jews?
Why do we concern ourselves at all with history? Because without knowledge of the past we cannot understand the present times. Historical records supplement our genetic memory and thereby enable us to form our future in a way not posssible to animals.On the other handÂ we find explanations in history as to why our present time is as it is. Before the war ten percent of the population of Saaz were jews. Like everywhere in Europe they contributed an important partÂ to the economy and culture which is missing today. If we search for reasonsÂ for the condition of the town as ist is today, this loss may be one of them. However, people can learn for the future from the mistakes of the past.
