Beyond the Walls of Krakow
German authorities created the Jewish ghetto in Krakow on March 3, 1941 as a compulsory dwelling place for the city's Jews. Under the Nazi occupation the ghetto in Krakow was sealed off with a high wall erected around it. Ghetto dwellers without identity cards were rounded-up on May 30, 1942 in the square (known today as Plac Bohaterow Getta square) and roughly 4,500 of them were taken to Belzec death camp to perish. On October 28, 1942 'excessive' ghetto residents as the sick, the old, the handicapped, and little children became the target. Some 600 were murdered outright. The Schindler Jews were among the small number of survivors. 'Beyond the Walls of Krakow' is a digital painting created as a memorial to the victims, survivors, and descendants to remember the past, so we may preserve the future.
