Warsaw Judaica + Panoramic Tour of Warsaw

Warsaw Judaica

Warsaw has had a strong connection with the Jewish world. Before World War II, over 30 per cent of Warsaw’s population was Jewish, leaving Warsaw with the second largest Jewish population in the world, behind New York. That population enjoyed Jewish schools, libraries, theatres and sports clubs and had many famous celebrities just to mention the writer and Nobel Prize winner, Isaacc Singer, the pianist and composer Władysław Szpilman – known from the film “The Pianist”, and the outstanding actress Ida Kamińska.

Discover this interesting heritage as well as the newly opened POLIN Museum – which is not a Holocaust Museum but the museum of life – 1,000 years of history of the Polish and Jewish nations (winner of the 2017 European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage).
