Krakow, Poland – Oskar Schindler’s Factory to House Museum


    Krakow Schindler FactoryKrakow, Poland – The factory in Poland once owned by Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist credited with saving 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust, will house a new museum.

    A multi-media display focusing on daily life in the southern city of Krakow during the Second World War will be open to the public in the former Schindler enamelware factory beginning on Friday, city museum officials said.

    By the end of the war Schindler had spent his entire fortune on feeding Jewish employees and bribing Nazi SS troopers not to kill them. He died in anonymity in Germany in 1974 at the age of 66, but his story was made famous by U.S. film director Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film Schindler’s List which won seven Oscars.
