The Memorial Scrolls Trust's Czech Torah web page project is to encourage our Scroll-Holders to make their members and visitors more aware of the unique heritage of the Czech Scrolls.

Brno is the birthplace of many notable Jewish personalities from the domains of culture, arts, politics and enterprise such as the philosopher Theodor Gomperz (1832–1912), the writer Ernst Weiss (1882–1940, Paris), the composer E. W. Korngold (1897–1957, Hollywood), the violin virtuoso H. W. Ernst (1814–1865, Nice) and the painter Anna Ticho (1894–1980, Jerusalem). A memorial plaque, commemorating the deportations of Jewish citizens during the WWII was mounted on the front wall of the school at 37 Merhautova Street in 1965.

Temple Beth David currently holds the Holocaust scroll, below, identity MST#127, from the provenance of Brno and that it is on loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust.
