1. Krakow: Oskar Schindler & Płaszow Camp Tour with Lunch
Walk through Krakow on a guided group tour, and discover the other face of well-known architectural monuments related to the times of the German occupation in Poland. Meet your expert guide at the Radisson Blu Hotel. You will then navigate the crooked streets learning about dramatic world-changing events during World War II. Learn about the presence of the famous German industrialist Oskar Schindler, who saved 1,200 Jews and Holocaust victims during World War II by transferring prisoners to his factories in Poland and the Czech Republic. Walk through the Old Town and pass through the former Jewish quarters of Kazimierz as you make your way to the Podgórze district, where the Jewish Ghetto was once located. Next, visit the sites of the former concentration camp in Płaszow, which is depicted in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List movie, and which supplied several military factories and a quarry with labor workers. The area which held the camp now consists of sparsely wooded hills and fields, with one large memorial to all the victims, erected in 1964, and several smaller ones. This tour is designed for the curious visitor who wants to do more than just scratch the surface.
