oscar schindler exhibitionIn the period between September 13th (2018) and July 7th (2019), you can check out their newest temporary exhibition which shows the lives of seven Poles during the German occupation. Have you ever wondered what life was like during the Nazi reign in Krakow and in Poland?

The seven people on display all took part in the Polish Home Army, the dominant resistance movement in Poland. The Home Army swore their allegiance to the Polish government in exile.

As you visit the exhibition, you will get a much closer experience and look at what life really was like during this period. Some of the topics covered are family upbringing and childhood, experiences from the beginning of the war, everyday occupation, emerging friendships, ideological approach to the fight for independence, service in the Home Army, horror resulting from the Gestapo arrest and the bestial interrogation, shorter/longer stays in the concentration camps, fighting in partisan units against the rulers, and unfortunately, the deaths of colleagues, friends and loved ones.

The exhibition will be held in the Oscar Schindler factory. The address of the factory is Lipowa 4 (ul), 30-702 Kraków.
