The paper brings out first indications of Jewish presence on the medieval soil of Southern Hungary,even though these mentions in sources do not always clearly point out that the data on Jews relates to medieval southern Hungary. However, some assumptions in the written documents of medieval time can lead to theconclusion that, sporadically, there were smaller Jewish communities or individual presence of Jewish families in Srem (Syrmia) and maybe even in Banatwithin the turmoil of the epochs in the 16th century.
