Jewish Cracow
New cementary in Jewish quarter called Kazimierz. It's gidled by wall made of fragments of authentic graves destroyed by Nazi during the World War II.

               

Kazimierz is great with its atmosphere, there are some synagogues, a lot of "klezmer" pubs and memories for World War II and its consequences.
Pub * old jewish shops * remains of ghetto wall * Oskara Schindler's factory (came from Svitavy), he saved 1200 Jews * his office

                   

Plaszów - there were ghetto buildings and concentration camp. Germans demolished it before end of the war. Today there is a huge empty space near by center of town.
