Tarnow is a beautiful town but the Jewish Trail is a very sobering experience. It offers real insight into the horrors that took place here

A short walk away from the Tarnow Rynek and place of quiet and stillness. Only remains the Bimah of the original synagogue. Very sad to see that it was completely destroyed in WWII. However at least one must visit this place and feel the enormity...More

This is one of the first areas that the Jewish people were corralled and taken to the concentration camps. It is quite a historic spot and reminder of the devastation caused during wars. Very humbling experience.

This monument tells us how the Jewish population suffered from craziness of some men in the Second World War. We were just lucky to be hosted at 2mn walk. Please never forget!

Atmospheric and genuine - not tweaked for tourists. You need to read up beforehand if you are walking this without a guide as not much signage on route. Fascinating history. Old town great for strolling. Some nice bars and restaurants tucked away.

Worth a day trip to see the historical sites. Before it was quite a Jewish community ... but after the second world war everything changed. Interesting remains of the old sinagogue.
