A quick note on the background

Poland was a multiethnic and diverse country up until World War II. The large number of foreigners and their children living within its territory was a result of a policy of openness pursued by the Polish authorities.

What was the reason for this? The main one was that the Poles themselves were foreigners – since the 16th century the kings in Poland had been chosen by election. The nobility elected the monarch – either from within their own ranks or from selected foreign princes.

This guide will take you in the footsteps of the Jewish minority in Warsaw, via synagogues, prayer houses and cultural centres (also post war). Listen also to the tales of the places where the Jewish inhabitants of Warsaw

I show Warsaw to those who will only be here once as well as its own inhabitants, in English, Italian, French and Polish. I also write books about Warsaw, am the co-author of documentary films as well as the publisher of a series of city children’s games, the presenter of a radio show and the author of articles for several press titles.
