From there we’ll head to the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, which was long considered the home of the largest Jewish community in the world.

Continuing with this Private Jewish Quarter in Krakow. Our next stop is the old Podgórze ghetto.
It is located in the industrial area of Krakow, but it doesn’t make it any less enigmatic or less interesting a place.
Actually, this venue witnessed much of the drama of the Nazi invasion.
Perhaps one of the places that will make you reflect about how fleeting life is. How destiny can destroy in the blink of an eye any plan we have created, is the monument of the chairs, a set of empty seats that anyone can occupy to be the next victim.
Finally, the last stop of the walk will be the Schindler’s Factory. Today it is the most modern museum in Poland. Here visitors are shown how the city looked when it was occupied by the Nazis. How it was told about the life of the remarkable Oskar Schindler. He was man who had to rethink the course of his life and ended up saving the lives of more than 1,000 Jews.
Fun facts about the Podgórze Jewish ghetto and Schindler’s List.
Although the Podgórze Ghetto was the true Jewish prison in Krakow, where the entire Jewish community was locked up to control it and so on, it was the industrial epicenter where the Schindler’s Factory emerged, as well as many others that took advantage of cheap labor. In the film directed by Steven Spielberg, this area couldn´t be used to show Jewish life, but was filmed in Kazimierz because the old ghetto was destroyed after the end of World War II.
