Plac Bohaterów Getta

Plac Bohaterów Getta

Ghetto Heroes Square lies in what was once Krakow's Jewish neighbourhood. It's the site of an emotional memorial made up of 70 chairs symbolling the furniture left behind by Jews when they were deported in World War II. In March, a parade remembering this tragic period of history sets off from the square.
