This exhibition tells the story of Oskar Schindler, the German-Catholic industrialist and rescuer of Jews during the Holocaust who was the subject of the film Schindler's List. Following the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939, Schindler moved to Krakow and established an enamel works on the city's outskirts in Zablocie. That factory became a haven for about 900 Jewish workers, providing them relief from the brutality of the Plaszow labor camp nearby. In October 1944, Schindler was granted permission to relocate his enamel works to Bruennlitz, Czechoslovakia (this time as an armaments factory) and to take with him the Jewish workers from Zablocie. Through negotiations and bribes that depleted his war profits, Schindler was able to transfer more than 1,000 Jewish workers from Plaszow, ensuring their humane treatment and ultimately saving their lives.
