Plac Bohaterów Getta information
The centre of the Jewish ghetto was Plac Zgody, now named after the 'heroes of the ghetto'. This was the point of departure for thousands of Jews who boarded the waiting trains to the various camps. Today it is marked with a memorial by Kraków architects Piotr Lewicki and Kazimierz Latak consisting of 70 eerily empty chairs, which represent furniture and other remnants discarded by the deportees. Just south of the square on ul Lwowska is a remaining piece of the ghetto wall with a plaque marking the site.
