It is very hard to find a Jew on the streets of Krakow. We visited the temple where the late Rabbi Dr. Joshua Thon had been the spiritual leader. From there we went to the "Rama-shul" (Ra-beynu Moshe Iserlis). At the rear of the "shul" the cemetary which, has been in existence for over five hundred years, is still present.

It is recalled that in the Mosty cemetery there is the tombstone of a rabbi who occupied the post of town rabbi in the 16th century. This rabbi (whose name Ben-Pazi has forgotten) was a friend of the "Rama" (Rabbenu Moshe Isserles), and all those in need of salvation would prostrate themselves on his grave.
