The Story of the Jewish Community in Bratislava

Their Legacies Remain

"The people are no more – but their legacies remain…" Ida Fink, “Ikvot,” Kol Hasiporim (All the Stories)

Most of the Jews of Bratislava were murdered during the Holocaust: public figures, rabbis, teachers and their students, traders and craftsmen – men, women and children. Their stories are told through documents, testimonies, Pages of Testimony and photographs – testimony to the destruction of the community of Bratislava.
Each name, each family, represents an entire universe, filled with history and memories. Here are the stories of two families: the Fischer Family and the Steiner Family from Bratislava.
