    Default Gestapo HQ Museum. Krakow, Poland.

    Thought I'd upload a few photos from a trip to Krakow, a few years back. Beautiful City should anyone wish to visit. The most common site is obviously Auschwitz, but some other significant places can be found within the city itself. The Gestapo HQ museum is very moving and adds perhaps to the understanding of the daily brutality that Polish people had to live under throughout that time. Also of note is the Pharmacy museum within the old Jewish ghetto area and the Plaszow site(mentioned in Schindler's List) and monument just 20 minutes walk down the road.

    Another thing I noticed about the Gestapo Museum was the way people still laid flowers and placed candles outside, which remained untouched and undisturbed. There were also sections inside which dealt with the polish resistance, and the later Soviet occupation.

    Some great shots Friedland, thanks for sharing them. I'd agree, there is so much more to see in Poland than Auschwitz, but EVERYBODY should visit that place. Too many people, especially young people, have no idea about what happened there. That is something that should never be forgotten. It's good that you have highlighted other places of note too, people suffered in many, many locations.

    Regards,

    Dave. Yes we almost missed the place ourselves, I think there was the briefest mention just giving an address in a guidebook we picked up. It has no website as far as I can tell, but the details are:

    Silesian House. 2 Pomorska St.
    Open Tuesday-Saturday 9am - 4pm.

    The Eagle Pharmacy museum (not to be confused with the 'Pharmacy museum' which is actually different) is located in the Podgorze ghetto area itself:

    Remembrance Museum - Eagle Pharmacy / Apteka Pod Orlem
    at 18 Plac Bohaterow Getta square
