Holocaust survivors saved by Schindler march in KrakowBreaking News
Family members, historians and Krakow residents and officials gathered with the survivors in a square in the heart of the former ghetto to say the Jewish prayer for the dead, the Kaddish.
The group then set out to retrace the steps of Jews driven from the ghetto during its 1943 liquidation to the forced labor camp in Plaszow, about two kilometers (a mile) away where around 8,000 Jews and non-Jewish Poles perished during the war.
The marchers left flowers at a preserved fragment of the ghetto wall. Some of the survivors were making their first trip back to Poland since World War II.
