Description

The story of the Warsaw Ghetto is an essential part of World War II history. Join a history-passionate Expert Guide on the streets of the former ghetto to learn about the Nazi persecution of Jewish people, their daily lives, the uprising, and the Holocaust. Hear the tragic, true story of Polish Jews under the German occupation of Poland. Book a 2-hour walking tour of the former Warsaw Ghetto. Providing commentary in your native language, your Private Guide will take you back in time to World War II, the darkest moment in the history of Jewish people in Europe. You will get an insight into what happened to Warsaw during the war and see the Monument to the Warsaw Uprising. Nearby, you’ll find traces of the Warsaw Ghetto boundary markers, where over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding areas were imprisoned in Europe's largest ghetto. You will learn about hunger, disease and death, but also about the heroism and rebellion of the Jewish people. The tour will pass the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes, which commemorates the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The guide will also show you the Anielewicz Mound at Mila 18, which was a hidden shelter of a Jewish resistance group. Our walking tour will end at the Umschlagplatz Monument, which marks the departure point for Jews transported to Treblinka Concentration Camp, where more than 300,000 Jewish people died. Book an extended 3-hour tour to visit the former Warsaw Ghetto and the old Jewish Cemetery in Moranow. For your convenience, we provide tickets for public transport, so you will not have to walk a long distance. This old Jewish Cemetery was established in 1809 and is one of the largest ones in Europe, a resting place for over 200,000 people. The 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. See a piece of true Jewish history. Book a 5-hour Jewish tour to visit the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, the former Warsaw Ghetto and the old Jewish Cemetery in Muranow. We provide skip-the-line tickets to the POLIN Museum to save you time. This elaborate, modern museum will give you a deeper understanding of the history, culture and heritage of Polish Jews before, during and after the war. Don't miss out on this top-class attraction!
