MANY OTHER COMMUNITY HEADS SIGN MULTIPLE TIMES INCLUDING RABBI NATHAN WOLF LIBER, RABBI J. FISCHMAN AND OTHERS. THE DATES RUN FROM THE 1840s TO 1860s FOR GERMAN SECTION

THE HEBREW SECTION INCLUDES A WIDE VARIETY OF LETTERS FROM THE LEADERS OF THE PRESSBURG JEWISH COMMUNITY THE YEARS 1800-1810. MANY IMPORTANT COMMUNITY LEADERS SIGN AND WRITE THE LETTERS, MANY APPEAR IN THE VARIOUS BOOKS ON THE KTAV SOFER AND HIS DISCIPLES.

INCLUDED IN THE COLLECTION IS AN EXTREMELY RARE MAP, WHICH I FOUND NO RECORD OF ELSEWHERE. THE MAP IS OF THE OLD JEWISH CEMETERY IN BRATISLAVA, WHERE THE CHATAM SOFER AND OTHER GREAT LEADERS WERE BURIES. THE MAP WAS PRINTED IN 1943 SHORTLY BEFORE THE ENTIRE CEMETRY WAS DESTROYED BY THE GOVERNMENT. THIS MAP HOLDS THE KEY TO WHERE EXACTLY EACH OF THE RABBIS ARE REALLY BURIED, SOMETHING UNDER DEBATE UNTIL THIS DAY.

In the 17th century, Jews were allowed to settle underneath the Bratislava Castle on the estates of the Counts of the Pálffy family. The Jewish community created a graveyard near the river Danube which served until 1847.
The Old Jewish Cemetery continued to be well maintained until 1942-1943, when it was confiscated by the Slovak State and its anti-Semitic clero-fascist leader catholic priest Jozef Tiso in 1943 to build a roadway and the cemetery was largely demolished. Most of the graves were exhumed and reburied at the Orthodox cemetery in a communal grave behind the beit tahara. Only the most precious section, where famous Bratislava rabbis were buried – 23 graves surrounding the Chatam Sofer’s tomb – was preserved on the original site. Negotiations with the regime enabled the community to preserve this section of the cemetery including the Chasam Sofer's grave, enclosed in concrete, below the surface of the new road. The regime complied either as a consequence of a large bribe (according to one story), foreign pressure (according to another story), or for fear of a curse if the graves were destroyed (according to yet another story).
This construction allowed the area of the cemetery to become one of the main access points to the Bratislava city center and today, the memorial is seen daily by thousands inside public transport buses and trams passing by. Until the 2000s, the area was separated from the Danube by a public park. The Bratislava City Magistrate and Mayor of Bratislava Andrej Durkovský sold this land to the company Henbury Development, which constructed the River Park development a few meters away from the site.
