Take a short tram ride to reach the site left over from one of these camps. Hear a guide about the history of the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp, which was opened in 1940 as a forced labor camp and then converted into a concentration camp in 1941. On a walking tour, see different parts of the camp and learn about the intense work done in the military quarries and factories. Get an in-depth insight into what life was like in the camp. Explore the life of Oskar Schindler and hear how the camp was portrayed in the 1993 film 'Schindler's List'.
