JEWISH WARSAW TOUR-EXPANDED

BACKGROUND:

The people’s lives were once dynamic, charming and full of contrasts. The streets and alleyways, courtyards, tenement houses were almost always filled with hubbub. All their colofull and multi-layered world one day eradicated. You can only find very few inscriptions and traces of the pre-war Jewish Warsaw.

The most amazing place as a “guardian of the heritage” is the unique Jewish Cemetery. Strolling beside the trees, the simple and sublime gravestones and mausoleums are visible in the shadows. Moreover, some of the tenement houses where the Jews had once lived also survive, at Próżna Street for example.  Only one out of 400 pre-war houses of prayer and synagogues is active, Nożyk Synagogue. Several monuments and remnants which pay tribute to the victims of the Ghetto and Shoah, maybe 50 places, our 50 stopping points, not too many, but also not too little to tell the story.
