While in Poland, don't forget to visit Kazimierz, historical area for Poland's Jews. Learn about the history, diverse Jewish groups, see some of the oldest synagogues in Poland, and visit a monument that commemorates the victims of the former Nazi concentration camp.
Kazimierz, was named after the King Kazimierz lll who invited Jews to Poland in the 14th century, it became a flourishing area of Jewish religion and culture. Due to the policy of religious tolerance that prevailed in Poland from the 15th century, the area became a safe heaven for the diverse groups of Jewish refugees from all over Europe.

The Traces of Jewish Culture day tour aims to retrace this religious diversity which resulted in the construction of numerous synagogues (including the oldest of the preserved synagogues in Poland) and a very unique atmosphere which is still present. You might even recognize some of the sights that appeared in the Oscar winning Schindler's list which was shot in this area.

The tour ends with a visit to the monument commemorating the victims of the former Nazi concentration camp in Plaszów.

Reviewed by: Huw M J, September 2012

The whole trip was excellently managed from beginning to end-from pick-up point to drop off. On this trip there were only three of us in the party, and our guide on the tour, Karolina, was excellent. She spoke perfect English, was a very patient guide, and whats more, had an absolutely thorough command of her subject matter. My deepest thanks to Karolina for a completely absorbing material, and congratulations to whoever designed the tour for allowing it to be so interesting.
