Tour description

During this free tour of Jewish Warsaw we are going to enter the disappeared world. We will visit the most emblematic sites of the former Warsaw ghetto and learn the shocking stories of German occupation, resistance and extermination - themes represented on the big screen in Roman Polanski 's film Pianist

We start our free walking tour of Jewish Warsaw at Grzybowski Square , in the heart of the old Jewish quarter. Before the Second World War, the Jewish community in Warsaw numbered more than 300,000 people, constituting a third of the entire population of Warsaw. It was the second largest Jewish community after American New York in the world.

We will continue our free tour of Jewish Warsaw by the only surviving synagogue of the Ghetto Uprising - the Nozyk Family synagogue - today the religious-cultural center of the community.

Then we will move through the streets and squares seeing the few vestiges of the ghetto walls. The highlight of this part of the free walking tour of Jewish Warsaw will be Chłoda Street - the site of the infamous wooden bridge , which connected two parts of the ghetto, made popular in the Pianist movie.

Then we will pass through other emblematic places of the old ghetto. Although the material legacy was modest, we will delve into the stories, accounts and testimonies.

What was the importance of the Ringelblum Archive for the historical memory of the Holocaust? How did Irena Sendler manage to save more children from the ghetto than the famous Oskar Schindler ? We tell you everything!

Our free walking tour of Jewish Warsaw ends at Mordechaj Anielewicz Street . Located there is an impressive Polín museum - today dedicated to showing the public the thousand-year-old legacy of Polish Jewry. We will also admire the symbolic monument of the heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising - an act of maximum bravery in the face of the Nazi extermination policy.

From there you could walk to the infamous Umschlagplatz - the site of the deportations or visit the Polín museum which has an audio guide in Spanish.
