Shtetl in the Shadow of the City

Purple shadows of figures from the Jewish communities of Galicia walk and play on the yellow sidewalks of the past.

The Galician city fades into the background amidst a pink sky.

Many Jews went to the cities of Eastern Europe and beyond, in search of work, but the memory of their shtetl was never far away.
