     It was Judengasse and so it will stay no matter what they call it now.
  Many towns in Europe have Judengassen:
  In Germany - Frankfurt, Trier, Tubingen ,Worms, Rothenburg, Stuttgart,
                      Coburg, Lubben and many more.
  but not only Germany : Vienna ,Salzburg, Cordoba, Sevilla ,London (Old
   In France over 200 localities have Rue de Juifs.
     In most of them Jews haven't lived there for centuries.
     In most of them the Jews were butchered.
     But the name was not removed . Even in the Nazi era.
      Why wasn't it removed ? Out of respect for the Jews ? Certainly not .
        I don't know , maybe it became part of the landscape.
          Part of their local history.
           In Chernivtsi it is not so.

          But for us, the people who know Czernowitz it will always be the
         The narrow slanted street with the decaying houses , the heart of
Jewish Czernowitz.
