Full description

On this exclusive tour you will discover World War II history in the former Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw with an Expert Guide. See the oldest synagogue in the city, learn about the heritage of Polish Jews, discover the secrets of the Warsaw Ghetto during WWII, and more. Immerse yourself in stories about hunger, disease and death, but also of heroism and rebellion.

Book a 2-hour walking tour to see the preserved remnants of the former Warsaw Ghetto. This is where over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding areas were imprisoned in an area of four square kilometers forming the largest ghetto in all of Europe. Your Private Guide will show you the old ghetto walls and tell you by whom, how and why they were built. You will see old Jewish houses and learn about the daily life of Jewish people inside the former Jewish quarter. Of course, this includes the story of the heroic 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and mass deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka and other Nazi concentration and extermination camps in Poland. You will discover new details about the Final Solution Plan and the Holocaust. The tour will end in front of the restored Nozyk Synagogue, which is the only remaining prewar synagogue in Warsaw.

Your Private Guide will show you the graves of spiritual leaders, political activists, honored creators of Jewish culture and thousands of nameless victims of World War II.
