Between 1941 and 1943, within the ghetto in Krakow there was a pharmacy run by the Pole, Tadeusz Pankiewicz.
During his stay in the ghetto, Pankiewicz was able to help many Jews and described those tragic events in a book published after war “The Krakow Ghetto Pharmacy”. Today, in the building of the Eagle Pharmacy, which is a branch of the Museum of the City of Krakow, there is a permanent exhibition showing the fate of the Jews in the Krakow ghetto.
