Tour Details

One man saved over 1200 lives. He is not a standard, stereotypical hero though. His reasons were not always selfless. He is a very complex character. Who was he?

Do you want to feel like a witness of the wartime in Krakow and get to know the truth about Oscar Schindler yourself? Imagine walking among the city’s inhabitants, entering narrow passages and over-populated apartments in the ghetto, finding weapons in resistance house and seeing the horror of being imprisoned and interrogated.

Pop in at the photographer’s shop, board a tram and watch a view from the windows; take a look at a typical Jewish apartment in the Ghetto. Once overwhelmed by the omnipresent enemy, you will finally feel the bittersweet relief of liberation by the Soviet Army.

The Schindler Guided Tour exhibition presents documentary photographs,  eyewitness accounts, film documentaries and multimedia shows. They are combined in order to create a chronological vision of Krakow’s history. You can see how the war destroyed lives of individuals and of masses. You can also see how ordinary objects such as photographs, newspapers and personal artifacts helped to immortalize everyday life in the city occupied by Nazis.
