“Writ” of King Ladislaus (the Posthumous) [Present-day Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland]: “In response to the complaints brought forth by the citizens and community of Olomouc, King Ladislaus orders the Jews who live in the city, young and old, to leave with their movable possessions by Saint Martin’s Day. He gifts the homes, the synagogue, and the cemetery of the Jews to the citizens of Olomouc for which they are to pay the king and his heirs/successors, the Margraves of Moravia the same 40 Schock Groschen [currency] annually which the Jews had paid to the king up until then.” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a modern German summary of the original, long, Early New High German text, both of which can be found in the cited source.]
