I am so glad I booked the Schindler museum with a tour guide - we had 'Big Tom' and he was fantastic! His knowledge and passion of history paired with a great sense of humour gave us a great insight into Krakow during World War...More
Come with us on a journey back to the times when Kraków’s Main Market Square was called Adolf Hitler Platz and the city itself was called not Kraków but Krakau. Find yourself in a kind of 3D cinema where everything is designed to make you feel, hear and even smell the history of Kraków during the Second World War.
Walk among the city’s inhabitants on the cobbled streets of wartime Kraków, feel overwhelmed by the omnipresent existence of the enemy, enter narrow passages and overpopulated apartments in the ghetto, find weapons in a resistance house, feel the horror of being imprisoned and interrogated, try to imagine your life in hiding and finally feel the bittersweet joy of being liberated by the Soviet army.
This will be, in a word, an emotional journey through lives of Kraków’s citizens under the Nazi occupation. Be with them from the beginning, through the 1,968 days of the occupation. We will tell you their stories, and also share some of the ones told to us by our parents and grandparents. We hope that, as with us, they will stay with you forever.
Goosebumps and chills guaranteed!
