Krakow boasts of magnificent sculptures and monuments. The most impressive is in “Ghetto Heroes’ Square” in Kazimierz. A community where Jews and Christians lived side by side in harmony. Until the 20th century.
This eerie display of empty, over-sized, bronze chairs honors the murdered Jews of the Podgorze Ghetto. They were ordered to bring earthly possessions to the square, and were then taken away. Most perished in the concentration camps of World War II.
I sat on one chair and blessed the bright minds silenced because of war. I wept, grateful to have survived the Cyprus War of 1974.
Susan has kindly sent through this photo of her sitting in that very chair.
