Enhance your trip

  • An exhibition of photographs commemorating the victims of the Holocaust and celebrating the Jewish culture of Polish Galicja. It is located in the heart of Kazimierz.
  • This was created as one of the five main ghettos by Nazi Germany and was a staging point where ‘able workers’, who were sent to Plaszow Labour Camp, were separated from those who would be killed or sent to Auschwitz. Schindler’s Factory can still be seen here, which is now home to a museum.
