Place of Remembrance:The photo from 1945 proves that the entire part of the southern wall was purposely chosen and designed by the ghetto guards as a place for producing a collective place of remembrance. Text and its elegance remind us of a typical memorial plaque. The original Czech inscription states: „PAMATCE na pobyt 1941–1944“
Translation: „IN REMEMBRANCE of the stay 1941–1944 “

Coveted Object: Hidden in a niche, we have to look very carefully in order to recognize a female shape. It is only a few centimeters in size. This erotic pose is exactly 70 years old, as a photo taken in 1945 proves.

The Ghetto Code: “AKB MEZMOS […] 628“ is an unsigned coded message left by a prisoner. We attribute it to Adolf Freund (born 11 Nov. 1896) whom we could identify by his transport number AKB 628.
