Třebíč was began to develop in the 12th century near a Benedictine monastery which was founded in 1101. Already during the Middle Ages Třebíč was home of a large jewish community. Its jewish cemetery dates back to the 16th century. During the Hussite Wars Třebíč was besieged twice by the Hussite army and in 1468 it was conquered by King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary. The followers of the Hussites, the Moravian (or Bohemian) Brethren, had a large community at Třebíč.
The railway bridge depicted on glass no.206 [right] is likely to belong to the railway line 'Mährische Westbahn' from Brno/Brünn to Okříšky/Okrischko connecting the 'Nordwestbahn' (see also Znojmo) with the 'Kaiser-Ferdinand-Nordbahn' (see also Bohumín).
The village of Kožichovice (Kozichowitz), 3 km south-east of Třebíč,
is the birth place of Matthias ZDARSKY (18561940). He developed the fundamentals
of the modern alpine skiing technique in Lilienfeld in Lower Austria.
