What To Expect
Journey to the former Jewish district of Kazimierz and hop out to stroll the streets, now home to monuments, synagogues, and kosher restaurants. Learn why Steven Spielberg chose this area to depict the Jewish ghetto of Podgorze in ‘Schindler’s List.’ Traveling further back into history, hear how the revered rabbi Moses Isseries, known as Remuh, taught here in the 16th century.
Then step into the Old Synagogue, the longest surviving temple in Poland, and admire its Gothic design. Visit the active Remuh Synagogue and wander the ornate headstones of the Remuh Cemetery, including the tomb of Moses Isseries.
Afterward, make a stop at Oscar Schindler’s Factory Museum. See the space of the original enamelware factory where Schindler protected Jewish workers from deportation.
