Full description
During this 3-hour tour you will explore the real-life neighborhoods, streets, and homes that made up the Warsaw Ghetto, the largest of all the Jewish ghettos in German-occupied Europe during World War II. Learn from a professional guide who will weave together the harrowing stories of everyday life in the ghetto while you explore fragments of the ghetto walls, the last street of the ghetto, and the still-functioning synagogue that survived the Second World War.

Learn about the history of this haunting place where German authorities imprisoned Jews, located in the Muranów neighborhood of the Polish capital, between October and November 1940. Over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area were located in this area of four square kilometers. 100,000 people died here from exhaustion, hunger, disease and more than 300,000 were killed in the nearby Treblinka extermination camp. Discover the ghetto's history, including the 1943 uprising, and its lasting legacy.
