    Visited with techiesteve.

    After having took a reccie the day before took the long walk back with techiesteve the day after to make our way all the way down.

    The limestone company 'Liban and Ehrenpreis,' run by two well-known Jewish industrial families from Podgórze, established a quarry here in 1873. However, During Nazi occupation, Liban was set-up as a cruel penal camp where 800 young Poles were kept prisoner from 1942 to 1944 performing forced labour.

    In 1993 Steven Spielberg used Liban as the set of all the scenes from Schindler's List that take place in the Płaszów concentration camp.

    During filming 34 barracks and watchtowers were set-up around the quarry, and though most of the set was subsequently removed, some traces remain confusingly mixed with the genuine historical leftovers from the war.​












    On walking further through we came to some little broken up outhouses and a polish crack den! Plus an interesting burnt out shed like building with some interesting little bits in.
