DescriptionExperience an informative and impressive tour of the Warsaw Ghetto. The topic of this tour is the history of the establishment and liquidation of the largest ghetto in Europe. In 1940 the Nazis established the ghetto in the heart of Warsaw. Over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area were crammed in an area of 4 square kilometers. 100,000 people died here from exhaustion, hunger, and disease and more than 300,000 were killed in Treblinka extermination camp. As a result of the attempt to completely liquidate the ghetto, an uprising broke out in 1943. The unequal struggle between the rebels against the armed German troops lasted nearly one month. In revenge, the Nazis completely destroyed the ghetto. It was survived by only a few Jews including Władysław Szpilman, the hero of the movie “The Pianist” by Roman Polanski. Before the Second World War, the second largest Jewish community lived in Warsaw, making up 30 percent of the entire city population. Within less than 3 years, the Jewish community no longer existed in Warsaw. During this 3-hour tour you will explore the real places and hear authentic stories. Discover fragments of the ghetto walls, the last street of the ghetto, and neighborhoods that were located within the ghetto. Visit the only synagogue that survived the Second World War and is still in operation. Find out where the supposed logic of destruction came from and how the plan of the final solution was put into action. Learn about everyday life in the ghetto, why the Jews took up arms, and who helped them. Discover the symbolism of the Umschlagplatz (collection point) and the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes. Although the ghetto has no longer existed for a long time, its history needs to be told.
