  The Jewish Ghetto
by sswagner
 
 

As part of our arranged tour from the hotel, we were brought to the actual Jewish Ghetto that existed during World War II. The Jews were relocated to this area as the first step to a much darker fate. There is a museum in this area. In at least one area, you can actually drive by and see sections of the old ghetto walls. They are ominously shaped like certain Jewish gravestones.

Address: To the south-east of the historical centre
