Jewish Warsaw TourTop deal ends in
Warsaw was the centre of the Jewish population in Europe at the onset of the Second World War.
Learn the unbelievable stories of life in the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, see monuments that commemorate people who had the courage to fight against the German occupation and discover the truth behind the Warsaw ghetto uprising.
When the Nazi soldiers marched into Poland on 1st September 1939, no one could predict how difficult life would become. Hitler was persistent - his aim was to exterminate all Jewish people. His hate has led to the establishment of the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, where Jews were squeezed into small flats, living in fear each day that the Germans will pay them ‘a visit’. Dragged into the Umschlagplatz, Jews were selected either for a quick death on the square or for a long and painful one in the infamous concentration camps.

One of the prisoners was Janusz Korczak, a writer, doctor, and a teacher. Although Korczak had a chance to escape from the ghetto, he didn’t want to leave the children he took care of in the orphanage. Also, he did not abandon the little orphans when they were escorted to the gas chamber in Treblinka concentration camp; he voluntarily agreed to die with them. The Warsaw ghetto tried to stand against the cruel Germans. Who was Mark Edelman, the leader of the ghetto rebellion? Was he a soldier or just a desperate man who dreamed about freedom?
