These photographs were taken by a tourist from the Russian city of Krasnoarmeisk (Moscow oblast) who visited Skala in the summer of 2007. After viewing them, a Holocaust survivor from Skala commented that “all of the buildings in the center of town were once occupied by Jews” The Skala native also noted that it is apparent from the photographs that major restoration of churches and other buildings in Skala has taken place within the past few years.
