Visit Oskar Schindler’s Factory

Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum was officially opened to visitors in June 2010, after many years of exhibit scriptwriting and preparations. The museum housed in the authentic Enamel Factory of Oskar Schindler shows the wartime events that took place in the city and the tragic fate of its inhabitants.

The “Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945” exhibition is a chronological eyewitness report from the Second World War. Theatrical reconstructions of the authentic city space by means of photographs, films, and items from Nazi-occupied Krakow metaphorically embrace the city’s wartime history, leaving a memory of the heroes in your mind. You have an opportunity to enter the tram, in the window of which you can see a film about city, roam along cobbled streets, or walk through the crowded labyrinth of a ghetto with the living conditions of Jews reconstructed — this is only a fraction of what the trip participants will experience.

Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List” — the 1993 film set in Krakow struck by the Second World War — told one of the most heartbreaking stories in the history of mankind. Today, the story of the Holocaust victims is brought closer and made available to the visitors in the former Enamel Factory of Oskar Schindler — the German entrepreneur whose attitude will always be remembered as an act of humanity in times of cruelty.

Thousands of tourists from all around the world take this guided walk around Nazi-occupied Krakow every year. Visiting the place where Oskar Schindler saved the lives of hundreds of people from Krakow, mainly of Jewish origin, is a memorable experience. Images and sounds turn the former factory into the painstakingly reconstructed reality of the survivors and victims of Nazi-occupied Krakow.
