Visit Praga – the thrilling right bank district of Warsaw. For years it was a secondary part of the city that survived the devastation of war, with three different religions (Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Judaism) peacefully co-existing. Today it is a fascinating district, overflowing with artistic studios, galleries, alternative theaters and underground clubs.
Before the World War II, the only other city with a Jewish community of a similar size to Warsaw's was… New York! Realizing what Warsaw was helps us understand the tremendous loss that forever changed the city once so famous for its Jewish culture. Yet, alongside stories of destruction there are stories of the unimaginable bravery of those who fought without hope.
