Krakow's Jewish Quarter and Ghetto, Oskar Schindler Factory with a local guide


Krakow's Jewish Quarter Kazimierz is the best preserved Jewish town in Europe. In WWII it was left untouched and today this place is a great background to present florishing life of the largest Jewish Diaspora in the World living in pre-war Poland.

In early 1990's Kazimierz was filmed by Steven Spielberg in his Oscar winning "The Schindler's List". Very recently the exhibition "Krakow Under Occupation 1939-1945" was established in original building of Oskar Schindler Factory and in close vicinity of Krakow's Ghetto - Podgórze.
