Explore WW2 History with Our Warsaw Jewish Ghetto Walking Tour

Join us to explore the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto, where history comes alive as you walk the streets that once housed one of the largest Jewish communities in Europe. On this tour, we visit the few city blocks that housed up to 450,000 Jews and identify sites of interest throughout the area of the Ghetto.

Those sites include the areas of the large and small Ghettos, the site of the bridge that connected the two Ghettos, remnants of the Ghetto wall, and surviving buildings from the Ghetto era. Among the many sites of significance is the Umschlagplatz Memorial, where Jews were loaded onto trains and transported to the Treblinka Extermination Camp.

In addition, learn about the remarkable 1943 Ghetto Uprising, where Jews fought bravely for freedom against the Nazis. Our guides will provide in-depth information about the people who lived in the Ghetto and the courageous acts of resistance they displayed.

An In-Depth Study Tour of Jewish Life in Poland with Our Warsaw Ghetto Walking Tour…

We further highlight the rebuilding efforts carried out after the war, and you will be able to see and touch the debris buried beneath the new construction.

For those seeking a more comprehensive experience, we offer the option to turn your Ghetto tour into a full-day study tour of the Ghetto and Jewish life in Poland. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to add a visit to the POLIN Museum, Jewish Historical Institute, and Jewish Cemetery to your tour.

Additionally, we have an expert guide who is a Cultural Anthropologist and a descendant of Holocaust survivors who can be arranged to lead the tour with advanced notice.

For an even more immersive experience, you can explore the Treblinka Extermination Camp, which played a significant role in the Holocaust as part of Operation Reinhard. It is the largest site associated with eliminating the Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto.

Contact us for details about this extension, which can be a full day when paired with the Warsaw Ghetto Tour, or spread over two days if paired with the full study tour.
