We spent a good deal of one day and part of another in the Old Jewish Quarter, mainly because we'd heard it housed one of the most complete collections of Jewish artifacts in the world. It was incredible. We wished we'd had time to go to Treblinka which was the first attempt by the Nazis to try a concentration camp concept. One exhibit in the synagogues of children's art was especially moving. Treblinka was established as a sort of "showroom", so teachers were allowed to teach and some semblance of order maintained to present to the world for show. The art was the result of a very in-depth program carried out by a heroine who attempted to teach the children to look for the good in their surroundings--prison though it was. Very touching.
In downtown Prague right next to the snazziest modern mall was this group of human rights activists raising money by serving up what appeared to be 7-layer cake!!!! Each layer was a bright new color, and the pieces were huge!!
I want to talk about this clock in the Prague town center! It is one of a kind, and I'll tell you why!!! After the guy built it, the government poked out his eyes! I know!!!!
|Isn't it so wonderful????|
