Glories of the past -- some of the buildings that survived the Second World War

The street where my mother grew up -- in its hey-day.

Hunting for my grandfather's grave, in Wroclaw's "new" Jewish cemetery ...

... and finding it. Georg Cohn 13.12.1887-13.4.1938

The Schiesswerder entertainment palace and beer garden where Jewish deportees were taken prior to being shipped to Lithuania to be shot.

The power station that now occupies the same site.
