    Gouldy.

    Yes, some more pictures would be great. I remember the 'Chairs' you mentioned - they were in the square outside the Eagle Pharmacy. As I recall they were placed to represent the liquidation of the ghetto, when the Jewish residents were forced with their belongings there, and from where they were taken to the concentration camps.

    It was also amazing that the Eagle Pharmacy was the only business allowed by the Nazis to operate in the ghetto, but how at the same time the owner and staff were using it to help the underground resistance.

    Terrific photos, it is a frightening looking place. The cruelty is hard to comprehend.

    Maybe the rotate them , the floors in the cells are now covered by glass you are asked not to touch the walls, the fee is only 7PLN about £1.20 and we were the only people in there.

    For those arriving into Krakow by train (we arrived in from Presov, Slovakia), keep an eye out for the large 'Rauchen Verboten' approaching Krakow Central Station, painted on one of the outer railway buildings. I tried to get a pic but missed it.

    I must visit the museum on my next trip there also.
