The scrolls were silent witnesses to all that long history. They also witnessed the sad history of the communist period and even shared the fate of exile with the Jews. But now they are here, prepared to contribute to Jewish life again. Remarkably, they are set to play their role again in the revival of Czech and Moravian communities: Jewish but also non-Jewish, because not many Jews are left there. Some of the scrolls come from places where no Jews survived at all. Yet it is there that the scrolls help to revive the life, culture and community of the Czechs themselves. The stories of how the scrolls have been adopted by synagogues and communities throughout the world and especially the handful of stories of their repatriation are fascinating and enlightening.
