Once the second largest Jewish community in the world, the Jews of Poland suffered one of the worst genocides in history. However, traces of their rich culture and tradition remain, along with a revival within the present community. Visit the moving Monument of the Warsaw Ghetto Heroes, which commemorates the tragedy of the Ghetto. Stroll along Zamenhofa Street, the remains of Nalewki Street which once teemed with business life, Mila Street (including the bunker where the commander of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, Mordechai Anielewicz, committed suicide). Visit the Umschlagplatz Wall, where 300,000 people were deported in cattle trucks for Treblinka death camp in 1942. Discover the Nozyk Synagogue (the only remaining synagogue in Warsaw). Other highlights include the Jewish Theatre (the only professional Yiddish-language theatre in Europe), the Jewish Cemetery and the former Orphanage of Dr. Janusz Korczak, who refused to be saved and accompanied his Jewish children to meet his death in Treblinka.
