The Taube Center staff offers a series of custom-designed “Walking Workshops through Jewish Warsaw” which include tours of Jewish heritage sites and contemporary institutions, and a post-tour conversation in one of Warsaw’s cafes with guides and peers.  The walking workshops, based on advance consultation with Taube Center staff, can be incorporated into a group’s itinerary.

The walking workshops address issues of memory and memorialization, uncovering Jewish Warsaw’s rich historical legacy, conflicting historical narratives within the cityscape, creating new cultural paradigms, and creating 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.

Among the Walking Workshops through Jewish Warsaw:

“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.
