Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist, risked his life to save his Jewish employees from the concentration camps. Discover his remarkable life by visiting his factory in Krakow on a 1.5-hour guided tour.

What makes this landmark so famous?

As depicted in “Schindler’s List, Oskar Schindler was an ambitious German tycoon who lived in Krakow. After buying an enamelware factory in 1939, he decided to employ Jewish workers to save on labor costs. However, when he discovered the suffering of the Jews in the concentration camps, he decided to save his workers, going bankrupt in the process.

Schindler’s Factory houses a permanent exhibition about the Holocaust and how the industrialist did his utmost to save as many Jewish workers as possible. The exhibition relates one of the darkest periods of history with photos, recordings and documents which will take you back in time.

On your guided tour, you’ll discover the various rooms of the factory, including the former workshops and studies, all reconstructed and transformed into an interesting interactive museum. Learn about the consequences of the Nazi occupation of Poland and the harsh living conditions of the Jews during the war.
