When I travel it is NOT usual for me to visit cemetaries, but here in Warsaw I made an exception since I know so many families that live here in Israel that lost families in Warsaw.
Seeing things like the Janusza Korczaka Monument (you should really read about this guy - http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/biography/Korczak.html) and the children's memorial make you think on what extremes people are capable of, both for good and bad.
For more on the cemetary itself take a look at -http://www.warsaw-life.com/poland/jewish-cemetery
Or if you are looking for family members lost in the German holocaust, you may find help at-

Directions: The entrance is on Okopowa Street, opposite the end of Anielewicza Street.
