Oskar Schindler

In 2000 a small lecture hall with a capacity of 30 visitors was set up in the temporary spaces of the museum. A total of 14 display panels present the life of Oskar Schindler, the Svitavy native who saved the lives of 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust. Exhibits include 90 photographs, maps, and documents, the majority of which come from the museum collection. Presented in Czech and German, the display captions describe Schindler’s life in Svitavy, Krakow, and at the work camp in Brněnec. Also on display is a copy the famous Schindler’s List and the postwar honours Schindler received. Czech, German, and English documentary films the museum was able to acquire for its archives are also available for viewing.
