Depending on your preferences instead of Wieliczka we may visit Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory. It is located in Krakow city in Zablocie district. It was established by three Jewish entrepreneurs: Michal Gutman from Bedzin, Izrael Kahn from Krakow, and Wolf Luzer Glajtman from Olkusz. The partners leased the production halls from the factory of wire, mesh, and iron products with its characteristic sawtooth roofs.
The ownership of the company changed a number of times, and its financial situation continued to worsen. In June 1939, the company applied for insolvency.
We encourage you to see all the above during the two days trip from Warsaw.
