The Landau House is a treasure of souvenirs of the Bobowa Jews. It houses the exhibition entitled “Scraps of memory”, owned by Józef Gucwa who is passionate about the history of the Bobowa Jews. The exhibition is located in a house that once belonged to Markus Jakub Landau, a Jew living in Bobowa. All visitor of this extraordinary place are offered an interesting lesson of history.
