Follow the Remembrance Route and visit the most important sites related to the Second World War in Krakow with our knowledgeable licensed city guide.
You will start visiting with the main square of the Old Jewish District in Kazimierz where Jews lived in Krakow for hundreds of years. You will see the restored centre of the Jewish Quarter with the synagogues that the Nazis converted into storehouses. In 1941 all Jews living in Krakow had to move to the ghetto that was established by the Nazis in the district of Podgorze. Visit of the former ghetto is the next item of that tour. You will see the main square of the ghetto and the famous ghetto Pharmacy – the Pharmacy under the Eagle. The former pharmacy building houses a modern museum, re-opened in March 2014, with the exhibition devoted to the history of the Ghetto.
Afterwards, you will proceed to the former Oskar Schindler’s Factory. The museum established in 2010 in the original Factory’s administrative building is devoted to the history of WW II in Krakow. The unforgettable and touching multimedia exhibition entitled ‘Krakow under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945’ presents the wartime history in a very modern and accessible manner. According to thousands of visitors this museum is definitely one of the best venues they have ever seen.
Visit to another memorial site – the former Plaszow Labour and Concentration Camp– is the next item of this tour.
At the end we will take you to the exhibition established at the Pomorska Street where there was the Gestapo headquarters situated during the WW II. You can see the original cells of the Gestapo prison, where Polish people, fighting for Polish freedom and independence, were tortured and murdered. There are original inscriptions and prayers on the walls that have been written by the prisoners.
Pomorska Gestapo prison, along with Oscar Schindler’s Factory and the Eagle Pharmacy, creates the Remembrance Route. These three points on the map of Krakow are the three complementary stories about the Second World war and the time that came afterwards.
