The Story of the Jewish Community in Bratislava

The Bratislava Community After the Holocaust

The Valley of the Communities

The name of the Bratislava-Pressburg community etched in stone on a wall in Yad Vashem's Valley of the Communities

The Valley of the Communities at Yad Vashem is a site in which the names of over 5,000 Jewish communities that were destroyed or barely survived in the Holocaust are engraved on its 107 walls.

Each name recalls a Jewish community which existed for hundreds of years; for the inhabitants, each community constituted an entire world. Today, in most cases, nothing remains but the name.
