“Interesting to understand the plight of the Jews of Krakow under the Nazis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

A good guide will walk you through this once Jewish quarter and explain their dislocation and ultimate genocide at the hand of the Nazis...some especially important sites for those of Jewish faith and today a thriving cool hangout around the central market area including a busy flea market on Sunday
