Continuing on I found this monument, here in remembrance of the first 728 people sent to Auschwitz. All were from Tarnow, and most were considered Polish rather than Jewish, although at noted in other reports about Tarnow, the city had a significant Jewish population. Those were sent there later.
Behind the figure shown above there are small designs showing some of the groups that fell under Stalin violence. Below is an example.
By this time I had wandered around the same area trying to find something I never found! But I did find some very good things. So I guess I had a good reason to go back to Tarnow.
I had a spot picked out for kolecja, so I went there. As readers may remember, it was HOT in Tarnow. I thought I was is heaven when my drink arrived with a glass of ice. This is most unusual in Poland, but perhaps a practice in Tarnow.
I had a great pasta dish at this restaurant and then went up the street for an ice cream. I sat down on the bench by the flowers just as do the people of Tarnow while they eat ice cream from this shop. Tarnow is a lovely town -- and the slogan of the tourist agency is "Come to Tarnow before the crowds do." I so glad I did!
