Jewish heritage tours

Jewish roots in Poland trace back over a millennium. Poland served as a sanctuary for Jews escaping persecution elsewhere in Europe for centuries. Prior to World War 2, it is believed that about 3 million Jews called Poland home.

The heartbreaking war years of 1939-1945 led to the almost total annihilation of the Polish Jewish community at the hands of the German oppressors. Post-war, the persecution sadly continued. The policies of Poland’s communist government forced most surviving Jews to leave.

Today, the Jewish community numbers over ten thousand. Despite the immense loss and displacement, the legacy of over 1000 years of Jewish history in Poland lives on. Synagogues, cemeteries, schools, and other cultural markers offer poignant reminders of the Jewish presence.

We offer several tours starting from Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, and Lublin that take you to these historical sites linked with the Jewish community.
