    Stop At: Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, Szeroka 24, Krakow 31-053 Poland

    It was the centre of Jewish life in Kraków for over 500 years, before it was systematically destroyed during World War II. Jewish history have not only survived here, but literally abound in the form of the district’s numerous synagogues and Jewish cemeteries. In fact, no other place in Europe conveys a sense of pre-war Jewish culture on the continent better than Kazimierz.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Muzeum Krakowa, oddzial Fabryka Emalia Oskara Schindlera, ul. Lipowa 4, Krakow 30-702 Poland

    Oskar Schindler Enamelled Goods Factory re-opened to the public as a world-class museum. The museum casts the city of Kraków in the main role of its permanent exhibition titled, ‘Kraków During Nazi Occupation 1939-1945.’ Individual histories of Kraków’s wartime inhabitants guide visitors through the exhibit which covers the war of 1939, everyday life under occupation.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Plaszow Concentration Camp, Jerozolimska, Krakow Poland

    The concentration camp was built on the grounds of two former Jewish cemeteries in the summer of 1942 during the Nazi occupation of Poland. The original site of the camp included two Jewish cemeteries. From time to time the SS enlarged the camp. It reached its maximum size in 1944, the same year that it became a concentration camp.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Gestapo Headquarters, ul. Pomorska 2, Krakow 30-039 Poland

    The headquarters of Gestapo, the Nazi Secret State Police.

    Pomorska Museum features documents, archive material, photographs and various items that will introduce visitors to a recent past and learn how the German SS investigated and tormented its unfortunate victims. The main highlights are the old cells where the Gestapo would interrogate their prisoners.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Apteka pod Orlem - Ghetto Eagle Pharmacy Museum, pl. Bohaterow Getta 18, Krakow 30-547 Poland

    Branch of the historical museum- as in Schindler's factory. A compelling museum of photographs about of life in the Podgorze ghetto and information about a pharmacist who helped hundreds of Jews.

    I learned a lot about WWII in Krakow on this tour and found the locations we visited to be very interesting and helpful in understanding the events that took place in Krakow during the war. I'm very glad I did it!
