Itinerary

Day 1 Monday Arrival in Warsaw

Welcome to Warsaw! Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel, located in the center of the city. In the afternoon, enjoy a tour of Warsaw’s Old Town, including the Saxon Garden, the Royal Route, the Warsaw Uprising Memorial, and the Krasiński Garden. Return to the Hotel in the late afternoon. Radisson Collection Hotel.

Day 2 Tuesday Treblinka – Tykocin – Łopuchowo Forest – Warsaw

This morning, depart on a full day excursion. First, pay respects at the Treblinka Memorial and Museum. Continue to Tykocin, considered to be one of the best examples of a traditional Polish shtetl, with a beautiful and well-preserved 17th century synagogue and adjoining former yeshivah. Next, visit the Łopuchowo Forest – the site where the Jews of Tykocin were brutally murdered in 1941. Return to Warsaw in the late afternoon. Radisson Collection Hotel.

Day 3 Wednesday Warsaw

Today is devoted to the Jewish history of Warsaw, You will sense the life in pre-war Warsaw, embodying the worlds of the Gerer Rebbe, I.L. Peretz, and Isaac Bashevis Singer. Warsaw is sometimes called the “Phoenix City” since close to 85% was destroyed by the Germans in WWII. Start with a walk from Umschlag Platz, via the Way of the Courage Memorials to Mila 18, headquarters of the Jewish Resistance. Next visit the Okopowa Jewish Cemetery, one of the largest in Europe, the Jewish Historical Institute, and the Nożyków Synagogue. In the afternoon, pay respects at the powerfully moving Rappaport Monument before entering the impressive POLIN Museum, unfolding 1,000 years of Jewish history in Poland.

Day 4 Thursday Warsaw – Auschwitz/Birkenau – Krakow

Depart Warsaw this morning and transfer to Oswiecim, the Polish word for Auschwitz. Upon arrival, visit the Auschwitz Jewish Center. Next, proceed to a guided visit through the former death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau. This site, the epicenter of Nazi atrocities, has ultimately become an international symbol of the Holocaust. Millions come to honor the memories of those who perished, as well as to pay tribute to those who survived. The visit will include both Auschwitz and nearby Birkenau (also known as Auschwitz II). In the late afternoon, continue to Krakow and check-in at the Radisson Hotel.

Day 5 Friday Krakow

Krakow, unlike Warsaw, was not destroyed during the German occupation.

Optional Shabbat Dinner with members of Krakow’s Jewish Community. Radisson Hotel.
