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.

biggest cemetery in poland in warsaw,if your into that. gur is less than an hour away, the warsaw ghetto,obviously :) any questions let me know, been there a few times although never used a guide
not necessarily "into that" but I would defiantly want to go to the nitziv and R'chaim's kvorim.. I understand beside for memorials there is not much that wasn't completely destroyed in warsaw... Is lublin worth going too?

why not auschwitz?

I'm think about going its ~ 4 train ride from what I understand..

With the little left of the ghetto, if you followed the subject, you would be happy that you went to check it out (I was).

I walked mostly, also to the cemetery.

As this cemetery was a bit out, I returned by bus.

I also went to see remainders of the ghetto walls that are scattered a bit everywhere, as well as korcaks orphanage, which is turned into a kind of school.

The door was open, so I just walked in, and whoever asked what I was doing there, I just mumbled something in a made up language, and continued walking.

I saw it all in one day, without driver or taxi.

If you are going with kids or so, I'd go for a driver, and $40 for a day seems an excellent deal.

Really, that's all? Do you remember his name? I was thinking it would be 5 times that...is Poland/Warsaw still a cheap place to get around?
