The cemetery has over 200,000 gravestones. Hebrew, Yiddish, Polish - the captions appear in many languages and illustrate the complexity of the situation of the Jews in Poland and Europe of those days.
Many of these tombstones have great historical and artistic value. Here you can see the mausoleum of the three Jewish writers. Peretz, Simon Ansky and Yaakov Dinzon. You can also see the statue on the grave of Jewish actress Esther Rachel Kaminska.
In a moving corner of Warsaw's Jewish cemetery, a beautiful memorial is erected in memory of the great educator Janusz Korczak, in which he is depicted walking with the orphans of his orphanage, to the trains and the extermination camps. Korczak knew he was going to die and refused the Nazi offer to be released, because of his fame and his high international standing.
If you look closely you will see that right in front of the cemetery is one of Warsaw's largest department stores, the "Dom Modi Cliff" department store of luxury brands. Thus, both sides of modern Warsaw can be seen - on the one hand, a tragic and bloody history, and on the other - an empire of cheap shopping in a modern, lively and vibrant city.
