Established in 1937 in Krakow, Schindler’s Factory is an enamel factory turned history museum famous for owner Oskar Schindler’s historically significant decision to hire 1200 Jews to save them from the atrocities of the Nazis during World War II. His decision saved the Jews from the Holocaust – the gruesome fate of concentration camps that the Nazis had set up to murder them during the Second World War.
The factory has since been turned into a museum that houses several documents, photographs, artifacts, and emotional videos left behind by the incredibly brave heroes and victims of the war.
