Photographer's Note

The New Jewish Cemetery on Miodowa Street in Krakow on outskirts of Kazimierz - the old Jewish district of the city.
The cemetery was opened at the beginning of nineteenth century by the decision of Austrian authorities, which did not allow to bury people within limits of the city (the same rule also applied to Christian cemeteries).
German Nazis devastated the cemetery during the Second World War: gravestones were used to build barracks in Plaszow Concentration Camp.
The cemetery still functions, and covers an area of 19 ha.
