1. Dworzec PKP Będzin Miasto
Będzin Miasto is a railway station in Będzin, Silesian Voivodeship, Poland. The original station building, built around 1859, quickly ceased to meet the needs of the city, due to the partially wooden structure and small cubature. The modern station in the modernist style was designed on an area of 4800 m² in 1927 by the well-known architect Edgar Norwerth. The station building, constructed by Pronaszko and Sobieszek, was put into use in the spring of 1931, with a two-year delay compared to the plans. For many years, the station was one of the most representative buildings of the city, but later its decapitalization began. The station was in a very bad condition, due to many years of neglect of renovation, but in the summer of 2006 renovation works began. Currently, they have been completed – the building houses the m.in seat of the Municipal Guard.
2. Bunkier Powstańców Getta
The Będzin Ghetto was a World War II ghetto set up by Nazi Germany for the Polish Jews in the town of Będzin in occupied south-western Poland. The formation of the 'Jewish Quarter' was pronounced by the German authorities in July 1940. Over 20,000 local Jews from Będzin, along with additional 10,000 Jews expelled from neighbouring communities, were forced to subsist there until the end of the ghetto history during the Holocaust. Most of the able-bodied poor were forced to work in German military factories before being transported aboard Holocaust trains to the nearby concentration camp at Auschwitz where they were exterminated. The last major deportation of the ghetto inmates by the German SS – men, women and children – between 1 and 3 August 1943 was marked by the ghetto uprising by members of the Jewish Combat Organization.
