Krakow: Oskar Schindler's Trace, Lunch and Plaszow CC Guided Tour
Oskar Schindler is a German entrepreneur and breeder who saved 1200 Jews and Holocaust victims during World War II by transferring prisoners to his own factories. The main character of the book "Schindler's Ark" and the "Schindler's List" movie.
During this tour you will receive the most complete information regarding the history of World War II in Krakow, the personality of Oskar Schindler and the filming of the famous blockbuster of Steven Spielbierg.
The first part of the tour begins in the Old City and passes through the former Jewish quarters of Kazimierz to the Podgorze district of Krakow, where the Jewish ghetto was once located.
Plaszov was known as a concentration camp, supplying several military factories and a quarry with labor. The camp and life in it are shown in the Schindler's List movie. The area which held the camp now consists of sparsely wooded hills and fields, with one large memorial to all the victims, erected in 1964 and few smaller.

Pass By: The Ghetto Heroes Square, Plac Bohaterow Getta, Krakow Poland
Though after the war the name of Plac Zgody was changed to Plac Bohaterów Getta (Ghetto Heroes Square) and a small monument was erected, the space’s historical significance never felt more pertinent than its post-war use as a public toilet or parking lot. Finally, after decades of neglect, Plac Bohaterów Getta was renovated in 2005, sparking significant controversy over the design. Laid out with 70 large well-spaced metal chairs meant to symbolise departure, as well as subsequent absence, the entire square has essentially been turned into an odd, but iconic memorial to the victims of the Kraków Ghetto.
Stop At: Plaszow Concentration Camp, Jerozolimska, Krakow Poland
While thousands of tourists use Krakow as the starting point for visiting Auschwitz, few are aware that Krakow actually has a former concentration camp in its own backyard. On the other side of the river, in the depths of Podgórze, the vast area is almost undeveloped, despite the fact that it is located in one of the most desirable commercial and residential districts of the city - on the main communication artery (Wielicka Street), opposite a large shopping center (Bonarka) and not far from main tourist attraction (Krakus Mound). It is the former seat of the "Konzentrationslager Plaszow bei Krakau'' - the German Nazi concentration camp in Płaszów, today a wild, uneven space of land, which until recently did not indicate its own existence, let alone its wartime history.
