Jewish Heritage tour of Warsaw
Once a vivid Varshe or Warsze today is a capital that tries to recall the missing past and brings its charm to the future of a hectic metropolitan life of East Europe.
But the original stones and bricks, that survived the horror of the past stay still silently in their own place. May have them hear speaking!
Instead of them, we could go against the time machine and discover the beauty of the past, that rested only in some place of the area of former Ghetto, remains of Ghetto’s Walls, the orphanage of Janusz Korczak, the Warsaw’s Synagogue, the Jewish Theatre in Warsaw, the only street remained from Warsaw’s Ghetto, Chłodna street and building of Nordwache.
To day only the Jewish cemetery of Warsaw proves that the colorful past of Jewish heritage is real – 44 ha with the macevos commemorating those who were buried here in Okopowa for the last 200 years. The Monument to Heros of Ghetto, the Umschlagplatz Monument, the bunkier in Miła 18, and the disappearance of Great Synagogue and remained Jewish Institute shows the willing to live against everything….
During the 4-hours walking tour the area of former Ghetto with an introduction to the history of Polish Jews in Warsaw and Poland, from the arrivals of Jews to Masovia and Warsaw up to nowadays would be covered. Should you be tired there is possibility to have a cup of coffee in Prozna Street.
Jewish Heritage of Warsaw is not only on its western bank. Should you like to explore more there is opportunity to go to Praga district and see its remains with the scenery of the Pianist by Polanski, or the oldest market in Warsaw – famous Rozyc, where a great frescos from the former Synagogue are being renovated now.
