Oskar Schindler’s Factory Photo Gallery

Oskar Schindler was a German industrialist who, after witnessing with horror the liquidation of the Jewish ghetto in Kraków in March 1943, began employing Jewish workers in his enamel factory at 4 Lipowa St., which supplied metal goods deemed necessary to the war effort to the German army. Schindler managed to save more than 1,200 Jews from the death camps at great risk and expense to himself. Steven Spielberg’s movie “Schindler’s List” was filmed almost entirely in Kraków. More information on Oskar Schindler can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oskar_Schindler

I didn’t take too many pictures at the museum as it was incredibly dark inside and really didn’t lend itself to photography layout wise, but what few I did are displayed in this small sub-gallery.
