street art in krakow

One of the things I love taking photos of in my travels (other than doors) is street art. Some call it graffiti or an eyesore, but I’ve found some really well done artwork in different cities. Every city has its own flavor. In Italy, the street art is as bold and boisterous as Italians. In New York, it has a hard edge. In Krakow, I found several surprises, including this Eastern art on a wall.

Jews in Poland

I’ve never been anywhere in Europe where World War II seemed as present as it is in Poland. Certainly, visiting a handful of museums about the Holocaust probably gave me a different perspective, but still. People we met had stories, about uncles who mysteriously disappeared during the war, or grandmothers who¬†were executed by the Germans. If you’re interested in the war and learning about the Holocaust, any of these attractions will immerse you in the history.
