Jewish Heritage Tour

Before WW II, Warsaw had one of the greatest numbers of Jewish inhabitants in the world. Although their heritage was almost annihilated by the Germans in 1944, when almost all of central Warsaw became a field of rubble, there are still several hidden traces of Jewish culture and history. The tour leads through the now somewhat somber business districts, but proves very elucidating for everybody interested in one of the most tragic events of the past century.
