This tour will give the chance to experience the moving history of the Polish Jews in Warsaw from the 15th century to 1943 when their history ended abruptly.  The first place you will visit is the Jewish Cemetery. Amongst a lot of famous polish Jews is Ludwik Zamenhof, the creator of Esperanto.

A very informative and sensitive tour

The dramatic living conditions during the occupation and the tentative reconstruction of a Jewish community as well as the past and present living conditions were conveyed very clearly. In particular, the stories and images from the Jewish cemetery made a lasting impression.
