In a related item, one of the last surviving synagogues in the Sumava region (west Bohemia) of the Czech Republic will be reconstructed as a museum of local Czech-Jewish history. Dozens of other Jewish religious sites and synagogues in the region were destroyed by the Nazis and their allies during World War II. $92,000 of the funds for the reconstruction of the 19th century Hartmanice synagogue building came from the Czech-German Fund for the Future. Spokespersons for the fund told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that the project was selected because the region has a rich history of coexistence between Jews and Christians.
