Jews and Gipsies

I'm in Krakow, Poland, and have today walked around the Jewish quarter of the town, Kazimierz, and listened to a wonderful concert of Jewish and Gypsy music at the Glicia Jewish Museum.

Krakow is a common starting point for trips to Auschwitz, and whlist I won't be going there this time, walking in the old town, around the sites of the synagogues and visiting the museum - a photographic exhibition - is enough to leave one aghast at the depravity of mankind, and determined that the abuse and tyrannical wielding of power from which the Holocaust led, should not be allowed to happen again.
