Věžnička

Věžnička (Czech pronunciation: [ˈvjɛʒɲɪtʃka]) is a village in the Jihlava District, Vysočina Region of the Czech Republic. About 130 people live there and it has 4,51 km². Věžnička was first documented in 1502.

The most famous inhabitant of the village was Anežka Hrůzová who was murdered in 1899. The subsequent trial, the Hilsner Affair, ignited the most intense wave of anti-Semitism of the Czech lands in the 19th century.
