He was spotted by Hannover 96, then of 2. Bundesliga, and moved there on 24 October 2001, making his debut a month later on 28 November 2001 in a DFB-Pokal tie against VfL Wolfsburg II. He immediately enjoyed success, as the club won promotion, comfortably finishing as champions.
Żuraw's first game at the top level was also a memorable occasion as he scored after just 6 minutes against Hamburger SV.
He was a regular fixture in defence during his seven seasons with Hannover 96; in 2004–05, he was just one game away from being an ever-present (as suspension ruled him out).
In 2008, he transferred to the Polish Ekstraklasa club Arka Gdynia, on a free transfer from Hannover 96.
Żuraw made one appearance for the full Poland national football team, in a 1–3 friendly defeat to Belarus on 9 February 2005.
