"The Ghetto wooden bridge - 2" Jewish Ghetto - Wooden Bridge Tip by adin


If you go to the corner of Chlodna and Zelazna St., stand in Jerzego square facing west (with your back to the cross/monument). You can still see this building with its balconies stands as before. On the street you can see the remains of tram rails along Chlodna St. and the old bricks the road is paved with.

No. 20 on Chlodna St. still stands here from before the war. This house was inhabited by Adam Tcherniakov, the head/president of the Jewish Council of the Ghetto. Here is the place where he commited suicide after understanding the German's plans about the future of the Jewish people .

personal footnote:
Before the war in this very building, where today the pharmacy (APTEKA) is, was the clothes shop of my grand father, Zelman Meir (Max) Anuszewicz.
