If you've seen Stephen Spielberg's Oscar-winning film 'Schindler's List,' you will know all about the tragic events that took place in Krakow during the Second World War. This guided tour will take you through two of these places and offer you a glimpse into Polish history during these disturbing times.
At Schindler's Factory, learn about the story of Oskar Schindler, the German entrepreneur who saved the lives of many Jews during the war. Currently, the factory houses two museums: MOCAK, which is a museum of contemporary art, and Schindler's Factory Museum - dedicated to telling the story of Krakow under Nazi occupation.
Plaszow, on the other hand, is a Nazi concentration camp in the southern suburbs of the city. It was originally intended to be a camp for forced labor, but in 1941 the camp was converted into a concentration camp. Jews from the Krakow ghetto were deported here, and made to supply several military factories and a quarry with labor. The area which held the camp now consists of sparsely wooded hills and fields, with one large memorial dedicated to all the victims. Since the Plaszow area is now a nature reserve Stephen Spielberg had to build a camp replica in the Liban Quarry, a few meters away. We will visit all these evocative sites during our tour.
