Kazimierz was once a Jewish district, and before World War II the Jewish culture flourished. But the area, and the neighbouring district of Podgórze, became the scene of Nazi devastation, with most of the remaining Jewish population fleeing following the war. However, since the late 1980s the area’s Jewish heritage has come back to life, the progress aided by the success of the Spielberg film, Schindler's List. Now, you can experience the history of this interesting district and see exactly why Spielberg chose it as the setting for his Academy Award-winning movie. You’ll also see the Old Synagogue, the oldest remaining example of Jewish architecture in Poland. Built in the early 1500s, the synagogue is now the site of many exhibitions devoted to Polish Judaism. Other highlights are the Isaac’s Synagogue and the Remuh Synagogue.
