Description

The museum, located in the area of the old Jewish ghetto, contains a permanent exhibition called Pharmacy in the Kraków Ghetto.

The museum, located in the area of the old Jewish ghetto, contains a permanent exhibition called Pharmacy in the Kraków Ghetto.

The display was implemented thanks to the generous donation received from Roman Polański, who contributed the prize he received from the Polish Culture Foundation to that purpose. This historical site preserves the memory of Tadeusz Pankiewicz, the owner of the old Eagle Pharmacy, who used to work here throughout the ghetto's existence (1941-1943) and would repeatedly help his neighbours in the face of ultimate threat.
