Kevarim
Jewish cemetery near the Old Powazki. Established in 1809, it is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in the world. Spread over an area of nearly 44,000 square feet (3160 square meters), the cemetery was left largely intact by the Nazis and includes the graves and tombs of a quarter of a million people, including the great Rabbanim of Warsaw as well as many secular giants in literature and the arts.

The Jewish Ghetto
The infamous Warsaw Ghetto, the scene of the only organized uprising.
On the left side of the Praga River, where the Ghetto used to be, you can visit several monuments commemorating the Jews of Warsaw, including the Monument over the Ghetto Heroes at Zamenhof Square, and Umschlagplatz, a memorial raised at the very spot where Warsaw Jews were gathered in 1943, loaded on cattle wagons and transported to the death camp at Treblinka. It is still possible to see how Jews lived in Warsaw ulica Prozna, a street left largely intact from before the Holocaust.

Rama's Shul and the old cemetery are a must. In the cemetery you have many giants, the Rama, Tosfos Yom Tov, Bach, Me'ir Einayim I remember off hand.
Eiziks Shul is pretty impressive and has a Kosher restaurant in the back.
The Old Shul is supposed to be nice.
That's as far as Jewish sites. For polish sites I've heard mixed reviews about the Wawel castle, some say it's a must see others say it's a waste of time.

I walked around with white shirt and Yarmulka/hat and jacket+ full beard and experienced no problems at all.
I would say safer than France and Sweden.
