But this is still not enough because the story is hidden in people's everyday lives, their worries, their conversations with each other.

Interesting facts

Two Heroes

Oscar Schindler - His connections helped him to hire and protect Jews. At its peak in 1944, the Factory had 1,750 workers, of whom 1,000 were Jews. In order to protect them from deportation and death in Nazi concentration camps, Schindler offered the Nazi officials more and more bribes and luxurious gifts available only on the black market.

Tadeusz Pankiewicz - a pharmacist from Krakow. He applied for the possibility of continuing work in his pharmacy after the establishment of the Krakow ghetto (his pharmacy was located inside the walls of Ghetto). Authorities agreed only because of a possible outbreak of epidemics in the ghetto. Pankiewicz ran a number of illegal activities: he arranged passes, stored valuable items and documents, his pharmacy served as a refuge and a window to the world for the ghetto inhabitants.
