Description

Experience a vivid and impressive tour of the Warsaw Ghetto. The theme of this tour is the history of the establishment and liquidation of the largest ghetto in Europe. In 1940 the Nazis built the ghetto in the heart of Warsaw. More than 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area were crammed into an area of 4 km². More than 100,000 people died here from starvation, emaciation and disease, and over 300,000 died in the Treblinka extermination camp.

In 1943 an uprising broke out as a result of the attempt to completely liquidate the ghetto. The unequal struggle of the insurgents against the armed German army lasted almost a month. In revenge the Nazis razed the ghetto to the ground. Within less than three years Jewish Warsaw ceased to exist. Only a few Jews survived, including Władysław Szpilman, the title character of the "pianist" of Roman Polański.

During the 3-hour tour you will see the real places and hear the authentic stories. They explore fragments of the ghetto wall, the last street of the ghetto and districts that were inside the ghetto. You will visit the only synagogue that survived the Second World War and is still in operation. They learn all about the symbolic meaning of the reloading point, what the supposed logic of annihilation consisted of and how the plan of the Final Solution of the Jewish question was put into practice. But they also discover what everyday life in the ghetto was like, why the Jews took up arms and who helped. Although the ghetto has not existed for a long time, it is important to know its history.
