Schindler’s List, Schindler’s Factory

We did a walking tour of the Jewish Ghetto in Krakow. We saw several spots in the city that were used during the filming of Schinder’s list and our tour ended with the actual factory that Oskar Schindler owned during World War II. At the start of the war, 65,000 Jews lived in Krakow. Today, Krakow is home to only 200. Jews on Schindler’s List and their descendents are greater in number than all the Jews who live in Poland today.

We saw a photo of Izaak Stern who was played by Ben Kingsley in the film and saw the plague commemorating the work done by Oskar Schindler with the Jewish inscription from the Talmud, “Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.”
