Aichhorn (Czech Republic)

Jump to: navigation, search

Aichhorn was a fortress on the Svarcava northwest of Brno, Moravia (now part of the Czech Republic), where the Hutterites succeeded in maintaining themselves in small groups for several years after other Hutterites had been banished from Moravia. In 1650 they, too, were driven out. With their withdrawal the last remnant of Anabaptists disappeared from Moravia.
