We meet on Szeroka Street in the middle of Jewish district - Kazimierz and after short introduction we go to Galicia Jewish Museum, where we meet local guide. After that we have a walking tour through Kazimierz, that we finish in local caffee which is the center of Jewish community in Kraków.
Leter we go to the old cementary and after crossing the river we rich former Jewish Ghetto where we visit famous Schindler Factory.
After a short break we go all together by local transport to visit P?aszów Concentration Camp. The interesting fact is, that even local comunity doesn't really know that they live exactly door to door with a place of the camp.
