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.

I believe they have lockers, that's what I'm hoping for.

Many. When you enter, straight in front of you is the chelkas rabonan. There is also a huge sign with lot and row number of the rabanim.

I was there on Monday - here's the sign:

Had I realized that it had location info I would have referenced it while looking around as I was having trouble finding specific Kevarim.

The enormity of the place is incredible - over 250k buried there! Row, after row after row..

Cold and slippery with ice and snow on the ground so I didn't make it to close to all on the list.

Sixt told me that it's not  a rental car requirement but a polish law they give you the car but if police pulls you they may cease the car
