Oskar Schindler’s factory was the site of a quiet rebellion against the Nazi regime and its plan to exterminate the Jews. Though he had been given the factory after it was confiscated from its original Jewish owners, and despite being a member of the Nazi party himself, Schindler negotiated to keep his workers out of the death camps, saving over 1,200 people. Since his story was popularised by Steven Spielberg’s film, Schindler’s List, the factory has been a popular site for visitors to Krakow. Only a fixed number of people can enter daily, so book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

2. Krakow is home to the Memory Trail, a collection of 3 museums which jointly tell the story of Krakow from 1939 to 1956. It includes Schindler’s Factory, with its exhibition on Krakow under Nazi occupation, the Eagle Pharmacy in the old ghetto area, which tells the story of the persecution of Krakow’s Jews, and the exhibition at Pomorska Street, which house the former Gestapo detention cells and tells the stories of those who were interrogated there. A joint ticket is available for these three sites, which together offer visitors a more complete picture of life in Krakow during WWII.

Finally, there’s a legal graffiti park, which features a constantly changing sequence of artworks from local artists of all ages.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I visit Oskar Schindler’s Factory?

The story of Oskar Schindler, his factory, and the survival of the Jewish workers at the factory was made famous by Steven Spielberg’s movie Schindler’s List. While much of the film is fiction, the core story remains true: Schindler was a German entrepreneur, member of the Nazi party and spy, who took over the factory after it was confiscated from its original Jewish owners. Throughout the occupation and World War II Schindler negotiated to keep his workers in his factory, building them separate quarters in the nearby Plaszow labor camp. The factory allows visitors to see Schindler’s office, but it also includes a broader exhibit about life in Krakow during the Nazi occupation and World War II. A visit to the exhibition is both educational and a way to remember the atrocities of the Holocaust and those who resisted it.

Was there really a list?

There was, but it was never recovered. A full list of the Jews who worked at Schindler’s Factory is inside the memorial to the Schindlerjuden.

Was Schindler’s List filmed here?

Parts of Schindler’s List were filmed at the factory, including scenes using the exterior of the building and its staircases.

How much of the factory is the original building?

The original factory building is still standing. It continued to be used as a factory until 2002 by a different company which made telecommunications equipment, before being split into two museums, one about the factory, Oskar Schindler, and the lives of his workers, and MOCAK, a museum of contemporary art. Schindler’s office contains the original furniture, the rest of the exhibition space has been restructured for visitors but contains items from the time.

How long does a visit to the factory take?

Guided tours take about 90 minutes, but individual visits may take longer. There’s no time limit once you’re inside.
