Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory is today a branch of the Historical Museum of the city of Kraków in whose industrial south-west area it was situated. I went there in 2010 and proposed it for a British Guild of Travel Writers’ prize.
Today, in the eve of my second visit to Kraków, I thought I’d add my then presentation to the Guild on my website. It’s short: I only had three minutes.
Sadly, this was the Guild’s 50th year and the competition was immense, so it came fourth but it did receive a Certificate which I was glad to present to Beata Labno of Krakow City Museums.
All photos mine, except the Hilary Clinton one (copyright the museum).
But while in 2010, only the administrative buildings had been utilised, in 2013, the rest of the factory houses an excellent contemporary art museum. The permanent collection is both exciting and interesting as you can see below
