Free Walking Tours of the Former Ghetto

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, the Warsaw Ghetto Museum organizes free walking tours of the former ghetto area. The English-language tours will take place every day from April 19 to April 22, 2023. Choose between the ‘Small’ or ‘Large’ Ghetto Walks or participate in both.

The Warsaw Ghetto was a heartbreaking reality for the Jewish population of Warsaw during World War II. Isolated in November of 1940, the Warsaw Ghetto was the largest of all the Jewish ghettos set up by Nazi Germany across Europe. Despite its size, the Warsaw Ghetto was incredibly overcrowded, with over 400,000 Jews crammed into an area of only 3 square kilometers. As a result, the Ghetto became known as a city within a city.

During the tours, we will explore the history of the Warsaw Ghetto and its inhabitants’ struggle for survival.

The guides are: Ewa Bratosiewicz, Marta Rzeźnik, Paweł Szczerkowski. All tours will be conducted in English. Participation is free.
