In the end, it turned into a refuge of the Prague poor. The Jewish Town was delimited by the Vltava River on one side and the closely watched border with the Prague Old Town on the other. On a rather small area of about 93,000 m2 were about 30 streets, two tiny squares, one palace, several hundred variously connected dwellings and of course synagogues and the famous Jewish Cemetery.

Except for several buildings, the Jewish Town vanished from the face of the earth. Who would have thought back then that with every demolished house, a major part of our history is lost forever…
