Favorite thing: In XIX century Tarnow was the fourth highest Jewish populated city in Galicia after Krakow, Lwow and Stnislawow. Apart from some Hasidic influences, Tarnow was rather known as an strong Haskalah and later on Zionist center. Numerous newspapers and organizations were creating very rich and diversified cultural and political life. In 1939 Tarnow could boast of a Jewish community of 25.000 members. The Nazis established a ghetto for 40.000 people and from here in 1942 deported their victims to the extermination camp in Belzec and Auschwitz.
