Oskar Schindlers FactoryCurrently Open [Closes at 06:00 pm]
This is Emalia, immortalised in Steven Spielberg’s movie Schindler’s List, the enamel vessels factory where Oskar Schindler first began employing Jews as they were an inexpensive labour force. Schindler would go on to save over a thousand Jews from the concentration camps by first employing them here and then later building a munitions factory in his hometown. It was during his stay in Krakow that Schindler began to repent and started to save as many Jewish people as he could. The story of the Schindlerjuden is one of the few hopeful stories of the Holocaust which claimed the lives of over 6 million Jews. It is important because it represents the few moments of humanity during such a dark time. The museum housed in the factory today offers a glimpse into the life of occupied Poland and the Jews living there along with a history of Schindler and the Jews he saved. Schindler’s office has been preserved carefully over the years and inside his desk lies a copy of the famed list.
