Description

It is impossible to understand Warsaw without looking at the history of Warsaw's Jews. Before WWII, Warsaw Jews made up 30% of Warsaw’s population. Great names that lived there include Literature Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer, the paediatrician and children’s author Janusz Korczak, the founder of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film studio Samuel Goldwyn, and the great composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, the main hero of the 'The Pianist' by Roman Polanski. After WWII, Jewish Warsaw ceased to exist, but you can still find remnants of the history of two nations in one country.  This 3-hour tour of Jewish Warsaw takes you to places where you can still admire the climate of pre-war multi-cultural Warsaw. You will visit the only synagogue which survived WWII and the Jewish cemetery where famous rabbis, Tzadiks, and Jewish families are buried. You will discover what the words menorah, Torah, Aron Kodesh and mezuzah mean. You will also learn about the symbolic meaning and architecture of the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, the first and only museum in the world dedicated to the history and present of Polish Jews. Take a look at the synagogue, the last streets of Jewish Warsaw, the Jewish Cemetery, and the Museum of the History of Polish Jews with a local expert.
