Warsaw Jewish Stories

Warsaw Jewish Stories

One of the most fascinating aspects of Warsaw’s history is related to the Jewish heritage. Everyone heard of the local ghetto and of its heroic uprising during WWII, and some of you might have also seen “The Pianist” by R. Polanski. However, Warsaw Jewish Stories are not only about the war and Holocaust.
The first Jewish settlers came to town in the Middle Ages. For centuries, they had been recognized as influential merchants and talented craftsmen. Your specialized guide will show you the old, forgotten Jewish streets, once filled with stalls and workshops. Religious life was also very important for the Jewish society in old Warsaw. Therefore, you are going to see famous Nozyk Synagogue on Grzybowski sq. (the one and only that miraculously survived WWII), as well as the locations and some remains of other prayer houses.
Next unique stop is Warsaw Jewish Cemetery “Powazki”, which dates back to the nineteenth century. There, you will see a vast number of amazing sculptures, monuments and memorials devoted to Warsaw Jewish heroes and personalities (Korczak, Edelman, Zamenhoff and others).
Jewish Martydrom path will certainly not be skipped. With your guide, you will follow the footsteps of Mordehai Anielewicz – commander of the Ghetto Uprising, and one of the models for “Inglorious Basterds” characters ; Janusz Korczak – Jewish doctor and writer who accompanied children from the orphanage he run to the last trip in their lives, when they were transported to Treblinka death camp together. Such places as Umschlagplatz Wall, Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, and Anielewicz’s bunker must be seen.
Finally, you will have an opportunity to see the last remains of the Ghetto wall – those places are a bit off the main track, so again your guide will be very helpful.
After the tour, you might want to extend your stay and visit Treblinka (death camp memorial) or Gora Kalwaria (famous among Orthodox Jews as the residence of a famous Cadik).

My father and I recently returned from our Ultimate Poland tour and we really cannot express how impressed we were with the RealPoland coordination, staff, accommodations, food, local guides and transportation. The itinerary was filled with visits to key historic and cultural sites along with some fun activities like making our own Polish pottery and a pierogi workshop - admittedly, my father and I still need to work on these skills. The accommodations were top class European standard hotels. Breakfast each day was provided in the hotels and dinners were pre-planned at various interesting restaurants in whichever city or town we happened to be staying. Lunch was on us, this may seem daunting but the tours are arranged so that a convenient lunch break happens in a square or Old Town area with an ample choice of cafes and restaurants. As for the Polish cuisine, don’t expect kielbasa and pierogis for every meal - they like to mix it up for you.

Our original intent for taking the tour was to learn more about our Polish heritage. We asked to add an extra day on the end so that we could visit my great grandparents village - the Real Poland staff took care of everything for us, an extended itinerary with hotel, transportation and a local guide.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the beautiful county of Poland. It's clean, safe and very affordable. Additionally, the staff at RealPoland are amazing - especially all of the "Magdas". If you are considering a trip to Poland and are worried about getting around or finding the right tour I would highly recommend RealPoland they are first class.

Natalia' and Magda's quick responsiveness was tremendous! Overall, my total xperience with Real Poland was excellent. They were helpful during setting up my tour plans, and also very helpful when we had to cancel. Natalia researched my grandfather and found lots of information about him that I did not know. I am satisfied with the work she did and I look forward to traveling to Poland in the future. I hope to visit the area where he was from and maybe meet some of my relatives.
