Jews started to come to Krakow in the medieval time. There was one of the biggest Jewish communities in Poland before the second world war. Holocaust was a catastrophe for the polish citizens who were Jews. In Krakow most of the Jews were killed. At the present time klezmer music – typical Jewish music can be heard again in the Jewish district.
Kazimierz was established in the 14th century. It is named after the polish king Kazimierz the Great. Kazimierz was a separate city out of Krakow where most of the Jews lived. They built many synagogues and it is still possible to visit it. Nowadays Kazimierz is a district of Krakow.
During World War Two Nazis built separate places for the Jews – ghetto. Ghetto was located in Podgorze on the other side of the river. In Podgórze you can find Oskar Schindler’s Factory. The history of Schindler was filmed by Steven Spilberg. The movie was shot in Cracow.
