Originally established in 1942 by the occupying German forces, Plaszow served as a forced labor camp before being converted into a concentration camp in 1943. Its purpose was the imprisonment, exploitation, and extermination of Jews, Poles, Romani people, and other victims of Nazi persecution.

Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who arrived in Krakow during the Nazi occupation, saw an opportunity to exploit cheap Jewish labor for his enamelware and ammunition factories. Despite being a member of the Nazi Party and initially motivated solely by profit, Schindler gradually became appalled by the atrocities he witnessed at Plaszow and other camps.

Schindler used his influence and connections to protect his Jewish workers from deportation to extermination camps like Auschwitz-Birkenau. He bribed officials, provided better living conditions, and even risked his own life to shield his employees from harm.
