“Writ” of King Sigismund (‘Sigmund’) to the citizens of [Budweis] [Present-day Czech Republic; Kingdom of Bohemia]: “Sigismund (‘Sigmund’), Roman King by the grace of God, […] Dear Loyalist! Since you have pleaded with us, that we shall free you of the debts which you owe to the Jews – our chamber servants – We let you know herewith, that We have decided to move to Bohemia, [… and to fulfill your wishes …].” [Researcher’s note: Sigismund continues to say that he will accede to all of their other wishes regarding the Jews and that he will look for other ways to reward them for their loyalty. This document is signed in Bratislava, or what was knows as Pozsony/Pressburg up until 1919. The original can be found in the Archives of the City of [Budweis].]
