Cmentarz Żydowski, Warsaw

(4.3/5 based on 320 reviews on the web)
See one of the largest cemeteries in Europe, Cmentarz Żydowski, covering 33 hectares (83 acres) with pathways that cut through the trees and gravestones. Walk through the cemetery's sections and read the inscriptions using these pathways so as not to disurb the grave sites, and to avoid getting caught in the brush. Much of the cemetery has become overgrown, with headstones that have fallen over because there is no family to care for them. However, it remains a sacred place and many visit to remember the Jewish people of Warsaw who lost their lives in World War II. A small section of the burial grounds still serves the remaining Jewish inhabitants of Warsaw. Use our Warsaw holiday planner to visit Cmentarz Żydowski on your trip to Warsaw, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • Quiet and peaceful place, despite the proximity of one of the city's thoroughfares. By closing the gate we go to another world ... peace, calm, green, the smell of the past years. We find here the monument-symbol alluding to Janusz Korczak, run by the children's home, we find city Mark Edelman. Place a fairly zabiedzone, you can see that the Jewish community is trying to restore the individual part of the cemetery. Worth a wander into those that have not been renewed, overgrown parts. Where we can mix with the story told by the list. The cemetery is a place where Jews were hiding, we find also bomb craters-where only grass. Monuments and tombs is a masterpiece-so beautiful, decorated tombstones not long ago I saw. Refined in every way.

  • It is a place where you walk rather in silence. If you have never visited old Jewish grave yard just visit it in Warsaw. It is still open year where are around 2 ceremonies a month. Most graves are fr...  more »
  • Probably a few people that are not of Jewish origin knows about this place of peace generations of Israelites. When almost every day I look at the gravestones, tombs-ohele how to call-I feel Passowrd and something irreversible. From my window I can see a untouchable calm and literally as the fallen branch or tree snuggled up to graves so intact. In the summer, I have such associations that you can spin old movies in omszałym environment powichrowanych plates moving in medieval times. But that's just my imagination and the imagination stimulates the ... Looking at the trees among the tombstones can be seen ironically baraszkujące happy Squirrel which is full of ...
