What you will visit
W arsaw was the cultural capital of Judaism in the world in 1939. With 390 thousand Jews, the Jewish community in Warsaw was the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world (only in New York lived more Jews). The Nazi reign of terror resulted in the complete annihilation of Jewish culture in Poland and Warsaw. But important voices survived who were able to lift the heavy legacy. We would like to tell this story, which continues to this day. The walking tour takes place throughout the area of the former Warsaw ghetto. Here is what the guide will show you on the tour:
- steel plates showing the boundary of the ghetto wall
- a piece of the ghetto wall that has become part of a new building
- Monument to the wooden bridge that connected the small ghetto with the large one
- Monument and story about Irena Sendlerova
- Prefabricated housing estate on the site of the Great Ghetto
- Monument to the Heroes of the 1943 Jewish Uprising, where Chancellor Willy Brandt knelt in 1970
- Umschlagplatz | assembly point for the transports to the Treblinka extermination camp
- The POLIN Jewish Museum
Address: Plac Defilad 1, 00-901 Warszawa
Meeting point is in front of the main entrance of the 237 m high Palace of Culture, accessible from Marszalkowska Street.
