Branch of the historical museum- as in Schindler's factory. A compelling museum of photographs about of life in the Podgorze ghetto and information about a pharmacist who helped hundreds of Jews.

This museum is located in the corner of plac Bohaterow Getta where Ghetto Heroes Square is located, not far from Schindler's factory. It is small, only 3 rooms, but there is a lot to read and a video.
