If you've seen the movie Schindlers List,in my opinion one of the most important films ever made about the plight of the Jewish population in Krakow during World War Two this staircase and courtyard is instantly recognisable .
The movie outlines the mistreatment of the Jewish population starting with the expulsion from their homes to the round up of the Jewish people with harrowing scenes of sadism and executions ,the movie is hard to watch at times but compelling at the same time,shot in black & white adds to the macabre nature of the movie ,if you explore around the Kazimierz District you can spot some of the film locations such as Mrs Dresner Courtyard and Stairs ,this location is the film scene were Mrs Dresner hides from the rampaging Nazi's under the stairwell ,one of the most memorable scenes in the movie ,this location is easy to locate along Ulica Jozefa .
Well worth a few minutes of your time.

Easily recognisable from Schindler's List. You have to go through a doorway to get to the courtyard. Not much around but good for a quick stop to see

This pretty little courtyard and stairs was a film location in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List and is situated in the Kazimierz district, just a short walk away from the small market place Plac Nowy. The scene is question is the one where Mrs Dresner is hiding from the Nazis under the stairwell.

A short walk from Plac Nowy (New Square) with its food and shopping in the heart of Kazimierz, you will come upon the location of one of the most disturbing and moving scenes in Steven Spielberg’s extraordinary film “Schindler’s List”. Easily missed because it resembles many other spots in the older part of Krakow, it is shocking to see that this courtyard, the scene of such memorable and horrifying events, is today a normal urban scene. A lively cafe greets you at one end and you pass a dance studio, a sign for a vacation rental and other signposts of normal life along the way to the exit on Jozefa.

But the balconies, the courtyard’s width and pavement, and the slice of sky visible above are all the same. Photos from the film on the walls give you your bearings.

Shocking to see, but understandable. Life goes on. Even after horror. The key is to remember and learn.

Well worth a visit if you have seen the film. Can actually visualise the screen so clearly when you are there. Not the easiest place to find with Google maps!! Head up street called Meiselsa heading towards Plac Nowy (square where market is held) the archway on the street (pic2) is on your right.

In my opinion I believe that the movie Schindlers List is one of the most important movies ever made on the plight of the Jewish population during WW2, a brutal but realistic movie documenting the fate of the Jews of Krakow ,the first part of this amazing movie deals with the round up of the Jewish people from their homes with harrowing scenes of mistreatment and execution ,it's hard to watch but at the same time compelling, the fact the movie is shot in black and white adds to the atmosphere of the movie ,it really is a superb movie and it's nice that you can visit one of the movie locations on one of the most popular streets in the Jewish Quarter ( Kazimierz ) namely Ulica Jozefa.
The courtyard in question is known as Mrs Dresner Courtyard And Stairs .
The courtyard looks cool and if your a fan of the movie it brings back the scene of were Mrs Dresner hid from the rampaging Nazi's under the stairwell,a powerful scene in a powerful movie,I was here at night pub and bar hopping around the Jewish Quarter and couldn't resist visiting the site ,it looked cool, it's a beautiful courtyard especially when illuminated and makes for some great photographic opportunities .
The courtyard is easy to locate Ulica Jozefa ,look for the Stajnia Pub and your very near this courtyard.
Well worth checking out.

A small alley in the Jew district. If it wasn't the movie you could easily skip it. You will find it easily in one of your walks in Krakow.

In 1993, when Stephen Spielberg made a movie out of a novel called "Schindler's Ark," written by Australian author Thomas Keneally, he needed an authentic Jewish quarter for the scenes depicting the Jewish ghetto of Podgorze in Krakow. He chose the Kazimierz district of Krakow because this area had not changed since the 1940s, while Podgorze had been partially rebuilt with modern buildings.

This was a film location of Schindler's List, which is located in the Jewish Quarter. It's a nice courtyard and there is a cafe here. You can visit a site and have your meal with one stop- it's a good deal!
