The Taube Center offers a series of custom-designed “Walking Workshops through Jewish Warsaw”—tours of Jewish heritage sites and contemporary institutions followed by a debrief conversation in one of Warsaw’s cafes with guides and peers.  With advanced notice, the walking workshops can be incorporated into a group’s itinerary.

The walking workshops address issues of memory and memorialization, uncovering Jewish Warsaw’s rich historical legacy, discuss conflicting historical narratives and new cultural paradigms within the cityscape, and create links between the Polish Jewish past and its present. The workshops are created and tailored to meet the needs of each group, and incorporate heritage sites, city venues, archival resources and diverse historical narratives.

Walking Workshops through Jewish Warsaw themes include:

“The Warsaw of Peretz, Singer, and Szlengel”

“Assmilated Jewish Warsaw: The Wawelbergs and the Kronenbergs”

 “On the Edges of the Ghetto:  Cultural and Spiritual Resistance”

Fees for workshops are available upon request.
