A lists booklet of the small Hungarian Jewish community in Hejocsaba - which was located in northeastern Hungary, 1913 . Stencil printing with signatures of community leaders. Hungarian.
Already in the 17th century there was a Jewish settlement in Hejocsaba. During the 19th century the Jewish community expanded, and the Jews played a central role in the economic development of the city. In fact, the Jewish part of the city was administered entirely by the Hevra Kadisha. Following the riots, in the first decades of the 20th century there was a significant decline in the number of Jews in the city. Thus, for example, in 1840 there were 1280 Jews, whereas in 1930 the number dropped to only 272. During the Holocaust, the small part of the Jews who remained there was hidden by the local population, and the rest were taken by the Nazis to the concentration camp in Miskolc in northern Hungary. After the war, only 30 Jews returned to the city, and tried unsuccessfully to renew the Jewish settlement there.
The booklet was signed in 1913 by the local rabbis, and includes details about the division of roles in the Jewish community, various powers that are divided between the Jewish community and the local population, numerical data about the small community, and more.
