Lots of information but a lot of reading would be nice to have some of the old factory with a bit more of a set to give people an idea of what it looked like

If visiting Krakow visit Shindlers Factory which is now a museum. learn about the fate of many and how he saved over 1200 Jewish workers, some with no clue how to do the work required but were "vital" to his business,. Shindler was actually a member of the Nazi party but had a conscious and did what he could to help.

Exceptionally good museum that really gets the message across of what life was like in those ties. Exhibits excellent and a very moving experience, especially his office and the memorial to him.

Lot of wonderful information at Schindler's. Entrance fee was reasonable, you could easily spend a couple of hours there.
