Trams in the Kraków ghetto.
Through the ghetto ran two "Aryan" tram lines. Vehicles overcame the ghetto without stopping and travel time through its territory is only a few minutes.
Since Kraków trams had not painted windows, passengers during the passage could observe the inner life of the ghetto.
Nothing is known that Jews used the tram to escape. This would require a bribe of conductors, policemen guarding the gates and also passengers...
Today, from time to time Jewish Museum organizes a course of historic tram in which actors read the memories of people who went to the ghetto.
Ghetto Wall at Lwowska Street.
In early April 1941, during the Jewish holiday of Passover, abolished the existing wire fence and crew of Polish masons began to rise wall around the ghetto.
It was built in the shape of matzevas - Jewish tombstones (specific sense of humor of Germans).
German Governor's wife in this way described the building:
"In Kraków, my husband built all around of the ghetto the walls in oriental style, with beautiful arches and battlements. Jews in Kraków really can not complain.
The truly elegant wall with Hebrew taste".
Kraków - Kazimierz.
Center for Jewish quarter in Kraków.
Babelstein tenement has been notarially bequeath to Polish female physician, in gratitude for her commitment and caring for the poor Jews before and during the war.
Sensing the worst - some Jewish family before deportation to a concentration camp, endowed to the doctor the house in Kazimierz.
The woman was able yet to save from the pogrom a few Jewish children, for what she received after the war sapling in Avenue of the Righteous in Jerusalem.
Gate of Death at Auschwitz II Birkenau.
