  • Lovely little museum about Tadeusz Pankiewicz and his life helping Jews in the Ghetto. Very interactive as most of the cupboards and draws open to reveal pictures, documents etc. Would recommend if you're in the area.
  • Original place of the pharmacy of Mr. Tadeusz Pankiewicz - a man played an important role in the times WWII/Holocaust.
  • Apteka Pod Orłem w Krakowie Part of the history of the Second World War Christian pharmacist who refused to remove his pharmacy outside the walls of the Jewish ghetto and stayed there and saved a lot of Jews to death by the Nazis
  • Ten slotys to get in is cheap
  • Good to see from the historical perspective.
