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'm looking at a 6:15 stopover in Warsaw. Is that long enough for a visit to the cemetery (and maybe even the shul or ghetto area), or not realistic? There's another flight with a longer layover, but it's more $ and the take-off/arrival times are less convenient.

Airport to cemetery is max 30 min
You could probably make it even if you walk :)

Good to know, I didn't know how long the transit time is, and also how much time to leave for customs, security, etc. So now that we've established that I have enough time to leave the airport, is there anything else you'd recommend including besides the cemetery? Shul, Ghetto, restaurant, ...?

No special restaurants. Go to the Cemetery, it's humongous, so it depends how long you want to spend there, but you can do the Ghetto (wall) and shul as well.

Do I need a baseball cap and tzitzis in to go out into Warsaw (Jewish areas), or no issues looking frum there?

Also, is there Uber to get from the airport to the cemetery and ghetto areas, or local taxi or any driver recommendations? I'd prefer not to have to change money, so CC on Uber seems most convenient.

From what I see, the only 2 big-name Rabbonim buried in Warsaw are the Netziv and Rav Chaim Brisker. Are there any others that I'm missing, and how close are these 2 kevorim to one another?

As close as they get. There are many more big names, including the Chemdas Shlomo, and many rebbes, of chassiduses that were both wiped out and those that are still large to this day. Most importantly there is a tremendous mass grave there.

You should probably be at the airport at least an hr before your flight to clear security and passport control
