The photos in this book were taken in June of 2008. Its four chapters cover the cities of Budapest, Krakow and Prague, and the death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau. I start the city chapters with a brief photographic introduction of the city itself, and then concentrate on the Jewish heritage. In selecting these photos, I tried to pick those that reflect best the character of each city and its distinct Jewish history. The death camps are part of the landscape of Eastern Europe, and explain the absence of Jewish populations in Prague and Krakow. These cities had a vibrant and numerous Jewish community before World War II, a community that is now conspicuously absent in both of them. Budapest is a different story, as many Jews survived the War, even as most of the Jews killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau were Hungarian. So, both the vestiges of a vibrant culture in these cities and the empty barracks of the camps, bear witness to a chapter in our recent history that shall never be forgotten.
