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 hand  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 part  to the economy and culture which is missing today.  If we search for reasons  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.
