18 Dec Schindler’s Factory:
We had a very limited amount of time during our visit to Krakow, but we did not want to leave without seeing the building of the legendary Oskar Schindler. We stopped by at night after the Museum was closed. We did get to see the building with the collage of photos of the people he saved. We peeked into the courtyard to see the wagons displayed there, though we did not get to go in and see the displays in the museum. I was told that inside the factory building is Oskar Schindler’s preserved office and desk displaying a list of people he saved.
Oskar Schindler saved over 1,000 Jews through his enamelware and ammunitions factories. Schindler is famous for the “Schindler’s List” the list he kept with all the names of the Jews “working” in his factory and therefore immune from being deported and killed by the Nazis.
The museum in the former administrative building consists of photos, witness accounts and multimedia presentations it displays the “Krakow – the time of occupation 1939–1945” exhibition about Krakow and the fate of its Polish and Jewish inhabitants and German Occupiers during World War II both from an individual and a collective dimension.
