Completed in 1910, and originally the headquarters of the Free "of the Savings Bank of the Royal City of Podgorze," this is one of the Podgozre the most beautiful buildings, enjoying a sumptuous secessionist facade designed by Antoni Dostal. At the top, the view of the Podgorze coat of arms, while above the entrance is an allegorical relief on frugality. In spite of the splendid decoration of the outside, like many places in the region, the inland port of dark secrets. During the second world WAR, the Jewish Social Self-assistance Organization has been housed here, and it is in these rooms that the dreaded 'selections have been made, in deciding that the Jews would be transferred to the death camps as the ghetto shrank in on itself. Today, the building still serves as a bank, and it is possible to sneak in during work hours, pretending to be a customer.
