Oskar Schindler's factory

Oskar Shindler was a German industrialist who saved (approximately) 1100 Jews from death by making them work in his factories around Krakow (Poland)

With trickery and deceit, he managed to convince the Nazis that they were very much needed in his factories so that they were not sent to the death camps.

And some of those factories still exist. Now as a museum where you can learn how this piece of history went the way it did.

You can also get more general information about that period. What was that time like, what did the persecution look like?

An example was these play dolls for children… they could then play Jew hunter with each other… bizarre, but it really happened…

All in all a special place to visit. Tip: book tickets in advance, it can be VERY busy (in season)
