Pomnik na Placu Bohaterów Getta w Krakowie

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Krakow's Podgorze district was the site of the former Jewish Ghetto, and while part of the ghetto wall still remains, until December 2005 there was no monument commemorating the heroes and victims of the ghetto. This memorial was designed by Krakow architects Piotr Lewicki and Kazimierz Latak, and features 33 large illuminated chairs in the square and 37 smaller chairs standing on the edge of the square and at the tram stops. The chairs represent the furniture and other remnants that were discarded on that very spot by the ghetto's Jews as they were herded into the trains that would often take them to their deaths in Auschwitz and other concentration camps.

Dort hinsetzen, nachdenken und das Wissen verarbeiten, das man erst alt genug so um 1960 herum endlich begriff.

und es schmerzt immer noch.....glaubs mir!

Ссылку верную Света дала! Мебель, выброшенная из разорённых еврейских домов.... Их хозяевам она уже никогда не понадобится...
