This half-day tour focuses on visiting places connected with the Jewish presence in Poland for about ten centuries. In Warsaw you can see: the still functioning Jewish cemetery; Nozyk Synagogue which survived the last war; the Jewish Historical Institute with its small museum and archives; a remaining part of the ghetto wall; Umschlagplatz memorial marking the place of the station from which Jews were deported to the death camp in Treblinka during WWII; Rappaport monument dedicated to the heroes of ghetto and recently constructed Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
Take advantage of having the guide who has worked for March of the Living since it started to be organized, and the author of Holocaust survivors published stories.
Note: It is recommended to combine Warsaw city tour in the morning and Jewish heritage tour in the afternoon.
