Jewish Traces in Krakow - Schindler's List tourIn the past a separate town and now an inner suburb of Krakow, the Kazimierz quarter was the center of Jewish religion, culture and learning and the home of the city's large Jewish population before the war. Badly damaged during the Nazi occupation, today it has been rebuilt so visitors can admire the restored historical architecture and experience daily Jewish life.
Nowadays every corner of Kazimierz is the witness of the history of Polish Jews, visible in the system of narrow streets itself, in the abundance of markets, synagogues, and kirkuts - Jewish cemeteries. Synagogues: Old Synagogue with the Museum and Remuh Synagogue with the cemetery, Tempel Synagogue, Isaac Synagogue. Podgorze district - where ghetto was established, Schindler's glazery and house, Plaszow – former Nazi labour camp. Pharmacy Pod Orlem (The Eagle) in Krakow on the Ghetto Heroes Square was the only pharmacy in the ghetto during the Nazi occupation of Krakow. The pharmacy was directed by Tadeusz Pankiewicz, the only Pole living in the ghetto, from beginning to end of its existence.
