Walk Through Jewish Streets & Monuments

With your knowledgeable guide, begin your journey at Prozna Street, the sole remaining street of the former Warsaw Ghetto featuring 4 tenement houses. Discover important sites of the former Jewish district including the Nozyk Synagogue, Ghetto wall remnants, unique Jewish tenement houses on Walicow Street, and Chłodna Street, known for its 'Bridge of Sighs'. Don't miss Ludwik Zamenhof Street, named after the inventor of Esperanto, and the Route Recalling the Martyrdom and Struggle of the Jews. It's marked by blocks of black stone and monuments to those who fought in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Visit A Concentration Camp & Memorial

Explore a former Jewish orphanage and its founder's monument and the Gesiowka concentration camp where almost 5,000 Jews of Greek, French, and Hungarian origins were transported to Auschwitz. The Ghetto Heroes Monument, constructed from rocks meant for Hitler's victory monuments, stands in front of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews (POLIN). Marvel at the double meaning of the museum's name and gain an understanding of the incredible resilience and courage memorialized before you.
