Lanžhot (Lanzhot, Landshut) is a town (pop. 3,000; 3,736 in 2005) in the jurisdiction of Lundenburg (Břeclav) in the Czech Republic, on the Moravian-Slovak border. Hutterian Brethren began to settle here in "the good time," establishing a Bruderhof in 1565. In 1608 the thriving community suffered badly at the hands of Hungarian troops, who burned down the Bruderhofs in Lanžhot and Bilowitz and killed four Brethren at Bilowitz. The brotherhood fared still worse in 1619, when Dampierre invaded Moravia. On 20 September the Bruderhof in Lanžhot was plundered and burned, the soldiers tortured the provision master and another brother, and raped three sisters, tearing the child from the breast of one of them. In 1622 Lanžhot was evacuated.
