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 heroes of the ghetto; and an orphanage with the exhibition devoted to doctor Korczak - writer, educator and physician who sacrificed his life for children.
Note: It is recommended to combine Warsaw city tour in the morning and Jewish heritage tour in the afternoon.
