The abandoned Liban Quarry in the Krakow district of Podgórze was used as a location in the filming of Schindler's List.

Spielberg’s abandoned film set near Krakow

The buildings were torn down once filming was complete but traces of the set can still be found, including parts of the electrified perimeter fence. Most chilling is a path running down the centre of the quarry paved with broken Jewish gravestones. These are, of course, just film props but they are a reminder that the Jews who once really toiled here were forced to lay roads in the camp using headstones uprooted from nearby Jewish cemeteries.
