Oskar Schindlers Emalia Works

This enameling factory was managed by the Sudeten-German industrialist. He employed cheap, Jewish labor. He treated his Jewish employees well and succeeded in saving 1.100 of them from the Nazi claws by moving them to a labor camp near his new enterprise in Brünnlitz in the Czech Republic. After the war Schindler was awarded by Yad Vashem (Israel’s Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Authority) the title “Righteous Among the Nations” for saving these Jews. His story became famous by the moving picture “Schindler’s list” by Steven Spielberg.

The museum is under construction, but a guard seems to be available for guided tours.
