Formerly a separate village; it became a part of the Greater Kraków in 1911 under the Austrian Partition of Poland as the 21st cadastral district of the city. During World War II it was the location of Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp for Jews deported from the Kraków Ghetto as well as other prisoners from across occupied Poland.[1]
