Surprise! (Mug #53)

A lot of the mugs I get have come from a person I work with. I pretty much know her travel schedule so I was surprised when she pulled out this mug from Poland! Her significant other travels a lot and he happened to be Krakow, Poland for a work meeting. This city doesn't have the greatest history...

Per Krakow's Wiki page:
After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany at the start of World War II, Kraków was turned into the capital of Germany's General Government. The Jewish population of the city was moved into a walled zone known as the Kraków Ghetto, from which they were sent to extermination camps such as Auschwitz and the concentration camp at Płaszów.
