JEWISH PLACES IN WARSAW

Jews settled in Warsaw during the 14th century, after the reign of King Kazimierz. By the late 18th century over 9 percent of the capital's inhabitants were Jewish.
By 1939 Warsaw was home to over 350,000 Jews, which constituted about 30 percent of the city's total population.
The Warsaw Jewish community was the largest in both Poland and Europe, and was the second largest in the world, behind only New York City.
Today only around 2,000 Jews live in Warsaw.
