Poland was once home of the largest Jewish community of the world, but the holocaust had a devastating impact on the lives of many Jews. Polin aims to honor those who died, by remembering how they lived and showing the rich civilization they created in the past thousand years. A highly recommended visit.
Every trip to Warsaw should start with a visit to the Warsaw Rising Museum. Many people have heard or read in their guidebooks that Warsaw was completely destroyed during the second world war. A visit to this museum brings this notion to life.
