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.

No way! Does that mean the cemetery is not accessible as well?

Thanks, I planned my upcoming (כ״א אדר א) trip and route accordingly.

Does anyone know of a decent hotel in the Rzesow area ?

If you are looking for a no-frills one  night sleep, try http://www.palac.rzeszow.pl/
I used it 3 times for a few hours sleep after Lizensk. Clean & quiet.
They are 5 minutes to RZE airport & have a driver.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Talk about romantic. You really have to rethink what a romantic honeymoon entails :P

That being said 10 hours isn't enough time for Auschwitz you won't make it. You can go to the Jewish ghetto and a restaurant in Warsaw.

Auschwitz is impossible on such a short trip.
Majdanek near Lublin is much closer
Treblinka is even closer (1.5 hrs)

That's not my Honeymoon don't worry. If you find me a more romantic way to go to TLV for Sukkos in J, I'm all ears.
