THE FORMER CONCENTRATION CAMP PLASZOW
KL Plaszow was a concentration camp established by German Nazis in Krakow in 1942. That is where Jewish people were moved after the liquidation of the Krakow Ghetto in 1943. Plaszow Concentration camp became well-known thanks to the movie Schindler’s List directed by Steven Spielberg in 1993. The last and most infamous commandant of KL Plaszow was Amon Göth – the Butcher of Plaszow. It is estimated that approximately 40 000 people were prisoners of Plaszow. Nowadays the area of the former concentration camp is mostly covered with trees and plants. During the tour you will learn about the tragedy of Plaszow prisoners, you will see the famous Liban Quarry, remains from the Schindler’s List movie set and the memorial of the victims.
We highly recommend a combined option with Schindler’s Factory Museum (link)
