Just walking through here could send shivers down your spine; and not in a horror type of way. Just an uneasy feeling knowing the history. It just stretches beyond what your eyes can see.

The cemetery in Warsaw still stands with its stones reminding us of a thriving Jewish community that existed in Warsaw for many generations. It is hard to believe it was all but gone.

Many famous (and infamous!) souls are buried in this massive, expansive location. Need guidance to truly understand the breadth and scope of this cemetary.

I don't know if I would describe this as a cemetery in a forest or a forest in a cemetery and perhaps that is the nature of it - both are equal partners, neither dominates, they co-exist in a space which belongs equally to both....More

We walked to the cemetery -- up Anielewicza and crossed Okopowa at the light. It is a big intersection. Once you are across, the entrance is on your right. You can't miss it. the fee to enter is 10 pln.
