We went here before visting the Schindler Factory museum and the Eagle Under the Pharmacy Museum (both 'must see's' for anyone interested in 20th century history). So glad we did. The best way to get there is to get a tram to Dworcowa tram stop, then head up the hill to your right as you get off the tram, until you get to ul. Jerozolimska. You can enter the site next to a grey building which was used as a prison and torture chamber by the SS during the camp’s existence. There is a full explanation of how to find the small number of important sites to view at the following website: http://www.inyourpocket.com/poland/krakow/sightseeing/Plaszow - the 'Memorial of Torn-Out Hearts’ is worth going for on it's own but we spent an hour exploring. When we later visited the Schindler and Eagle Pharmacy Museums we saw photos of what it looked like as a functioning concentration camp and it was a little chilling to compare that to the lush greenery that exists there now. When you reach the Memorial of Torn Out Hearts statue, if you want to head back to central Krakow then walk down the hill to the busy main road and turn right when you hit the pavement - there is a bus stop about 500 metres down the road.
