Warsaw

Bródno Jewish Cemetery

  ul. Odrowąża (Bródno) ,   No District         02 Jul 2018
Traditionally the burial ground of Warsaw’s poorer Jews, this is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the city. Founded in 1780 much of it was wrecked during the Nazi occupation, with many tombs being used as paving stones for roads and even the Wisła riverbed. Even more graves were destroyed following the end of the war, with hundreds of tombs ripped from the ground and piled together in huge heaps. Today it resembles a neglected jungle of weeds and is vandalised so often that the city was eager to return responsibility for its maintenance back to the local Jewish community, which it finally did in March 2013. At the moment the cemetery is officially inaccessible to visitors, and various stories of muggings and other misadventures prevent us from recommending our readers seek it out.
