This is not a museum, but a fiels in the outskirts of Krakow, because all camp bnarracks were demolished at the end of WW2. Still, the site is worthwhile visiting, because posters direct the visitor to places like the camp commander Aamon Göth's villa, where...More

Overshadowed by Auschwitz, Plaszow is worth visiting for its place in the story of Oskar Schindler and his rescue of 1000 Jewish Labourers. There are a couple of buildings such as The Grey House which served as a jail and a little further down the...More

After a period of years since the first visit 19 information boards have been erected. This gives a small part of the story but it is still hard to perceive the ground layout and misery and murder of Jews and Poles. One still has to...More

We walked from the centre which is about 5k. It’s literally a field and there was nobody walking around. Big placards around the field with information.

This is a long forgotten area, overshadowed by nearby Auschwitz, but no less emotional. It is a half hours walk from the main centre of Krakow but you can get a taxi for about £6. The area was the site of a Jewish cemetery, until...More

This camp is unusual in that it's not highly developed. Instead, it's located in a very large field behind a housing development just outside Krakow, and I highly recommend it. It featured in "Schindler's List" as the work camp and quarry where Jews were sent...More

Easy access via tram, approx.2.5 km fromy Schindler's museum. Although much has been destroyed a walking path with descriptions of what once was is thought provoking. The house of Amon Goëth. SS comendant is still there and being renovated, as is the Grey house that...More
