The story of Jewish Warsaw before the war is a fascinating saga of the rise of a Jewish metropolis. In just a few decades Warsaw became the biggest Jewish community in Europe, a mosaic of different Jewish tribes: Litvaks, Hasidim, Jews from Galicia. During the 20th century Warsaw became one of the most important centers of the Jewish press, of Yiddish theater and of Jewish publishing.
