Description

Take an emotional journey through history and uncover the scars of the Second World War and Holocaust on Warsaw, which was the second-largest Jewish city in the world before the war. Walk through Chłodna Street and Waliców Street and see the Nożyk Synagogue. Learn about the active role of Jews in the city’s life during good times and bad for centuries. In the 19th century, Jews joined other Warsaw residents in their struggles against occupying powers and participated in Polish uprisings. Discover how Jewish Warsaw flourished during the Interwar Period, with hundreds of artists, actors, writers, and journalists calling the city home, and a cultural life that was incomparable to any other time and place in history. Understanding the pre-war diversity and richness of Jewish Warsaw will deepen your understanding of the immense scale of destruction inflicted during the Holocaust. However, alongside stories of persecution and death, also hear stories of resilience and bravery. Gain a deeper appreciation for Jewish Warsaw, a story not only the story of the past, but also the story of today – the young, diverse, and energetic Jewish community that optimistically looks to the future.
