Abstract (in English)

While working on the design of the historic market square arrangement, we found out that several tenement houses were missing in the northern frontage. They were burnt down during World War II and their Jewish owners perished. Material evidence of the presence of Jewish community consists of a neglected cemetery with a grave of 500 Jews who had been shot there. Near the square there is a building that used to be a mikvah and now houses a shop. In the former rabbi’s house, there is an exhibition of the objects that remained after their Jewish owners had vanished . Although the memory of the wiped-out inhabitants and their culture seems to live on, the problem is how to restore the material evidence of Jewish community’s presence in the town after more than half a century has passed.
