Then... and now

To the left stands my great aunt and uncle, Izac and Laia Metzger. Laia and three children were murdered in the holocaust. Izac joined the Red Army and survived the war. He is buried in the Slowackiego cemetery as Edward Metzger. His story is at the end of this article.

Both of these photos were taken in Rynek, the Old Marketplace. The street in the background is Mostowa, a small street near City Hall which in the present day photo is undergoing some renovation.

Many thanks to Jacek Szwic for making this discovery.
