Just behind a blue skyscraper, this institute houses a library and paintings, sculptures, and old religious objects related to Jewish culture. However, it’s the exhibition on the Warsaw Ghetto that sticks with you when you leave. Black-and-white photos and 40 minutes of original film footage from the ghetto hit home – the images of the atrocious conditions Jews were forced to endure, with starvation and death part of everyday life, tell a disturbing tale.
