Visit the historic center for Poland's Jews on a tour of Kazimierz, the district where “Schindler's List” was filmed. Learn about the history of the area and retrace the steps of Oskar Schindler, an ethnic German industrialist who saved Jews from labor camps by employing them in his factory.
Drive to the south-eastern district of Krakow, Kazimierz, named after the king who invited Jews to Poland in the 14th century. Follow your guide as you wander through the labyrinthine streets on your way to the Old Synagogue, the oldest still standing in Poland.
Learn about how the area was used for the filming of “Schindler’s List” in 1993, before entering the Schindler Factory Museum. Housed in the former enamel factory of Oskar Schindler, the museum now features exhibits that tell the wartime story of the city, with recreations of a tram carriage, a train station, and a crowded ghetto apartment within the factory's walls.
Continue on to the Remuh Synagogue and its adjoining cemetery, a point of pilgrimage for Jews from across the world. The cemetery houses many notable Polish Jews, including Rabbi Moses Isserles.
