The Jewish ghetto lasted for a 1000 years. The Nazi's ended this with their methodical killing of the residents during WWII. When you walk through this area and visit the Jewish Museum and study the Jewish Memorial Sculpture in the front of the museum you will learn more about this tragic period than you ever want to know.

An interesting detail about the remainings of the walls is that there are some marks on the ground of the city. They are everywhere, as you can see in my picture, and mark the place where the limits of the walls used to be.

Warsaw Ghetto was the largest and most horrified place where many human lifes perished without a trace. Remains of it still can be found today in many forms: wall pieces, memorials, commemorative plaques... It's important that atrocities of the (Nazi) Germans never be forgotten. This place is a vivid reminder what happens when people go mad and start exterminate their... More

The tour showed how big the Ghetto was and what is left today from it. It shows us the destructive power of NS Germany for the Jewish Community in Warsaw.

The ghetto is situated among apartments. It is a grim reminder of the second world war. Look at the round marks chopped on the bricks. We could see left overs of burnt candles used by those who came to pay respect to the victims. Do read the information on the wall. Looking over the wall, you would see the iconic... More

Warsaw Ghetto was the largest of the isolated parts of towns (ghettos) in which the Nazi regime in late 1930s and early 1940s closed the Jews in the context of the Holocaust on the territory of Germany and the occupied countries. In the ghetto there was a big uprising, which is the only organized mass resistance and Jewish Holocaust.

Chanced upon this unique piece of Warsaw's suffering. After the Nazi blitz there's not much left of original Warsaw. But walking unaware and then stumbling on this piece of the getto bumps you back into reality.

Every time more and more, skyscrapers, new buildings, chic resturants and simialr stuff are protruding, leaving almost nothing of the ghetto. What is left, is almost hidden away. Forgetting the past (no matter how bad and negative is) allows the same mistakes ot happen int he future. What is left and the story of the ghetto should be obligatory to... More

The Warszawa city is known by the resistence during World War II. The polish people and the Jews made history.
