Czech Embassy helped by the repatriation of a precious historical object to the Czech Republic

On 19 May 2015 Ambassador I. Schwarz received from N. Goldberg, collection manager in the Museum division in Yad Vashem, a Torah mantle from 1901 of the Jewish community in Holešov which will be returned to its owner the Jewish Museum in Prague. The Torah mantle became part of its collections in the years 1942 – 1945 and disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the postwar time. After the mantle appeared in the offer of one of the auction houses in Jerusalem, negotiations with its holder were initiated and led to an agreement on its repatriation through the Yad Vashem Memorial.
