Bohuslavice (German: Bohuslawitz, Postlawitz, Poslawitz; now Bohuslavice u Kyjova, Okres Hodonín, Jihomoravský kraj), a vil­lage near Kyjov (Gaya) in the South Moravian Region (coordinates: 49.050278°, 17.120833° [49° 3′ 1″ N, 17° 7′ 15″ E], belonging to the domains of Bucovice. In 1545 the Hutterian Brethren acquired a house here with a mill, in the spring of the following year another house, and on 7 May 1547, the third house. Although this seems to have been one of the larger Bruderhofs, it was apparent­ly abandoned later. Nothing more is heard of it, nor is it mentioned in the list of the Bruderhofs vacated in 1622.
