The administrative building of the old Oskar Schindler Enamel Factory at ul. Lipowa 4 in Krakow is home to the department of the City of Krakow Historical Museum dedicated to the history of Krakow between 1939-1945. The wartime history of the factory and its owner, and of the fate of the Jewish prisoners he saved from the Płaszów camp are best known from Steven Spielberg's film Schindler's List. It is the Museum's aim to show the history of the factory on ul. Lipowa in a broader context and allow visitors to discover the history of occupied Krakow. The hero of the exhibition under preparation entitled Krakow - the Time of the Occupation(1939-1945) is Krakow and its inhabitants during the Second World War. Visitors are guided through the exhibition by selected Cracovians whose individual fates stand as a symbol of the history of many Polish and Jewish residents of the city.
