Kazimierz since the 14th century to the 19th century was an independent city. It was named after king Kazimierz the Great (1310-1370) and has traditionally been inhabited by the Jewish population. With its many synagogues and historical buildings it has always been the hub of culture and history of Polish Jews.
Most of them perished during the liquidation of the Kraków ghetto in 1943 or were exterminated in different concentration camps (Płaszów, Bełżec, Auschwitz).
A well known film „Schindler List” by Steven Spielberg was mostly shot in Kazimierz, not in Podgórze district on the other side of the Vistula River where the Ghetto had been situated.
The Ghetto in Kraków existed from March 1941 and was brutally liquidated in March 1943.
