Warsaw: Warsaw Ghetto Private Walking Tour with Hotel Pickup

As a result of the attempt to completely liquidate the ghetto, an uprising broke out in 1943. The unequal struggle between the rebels against the armed German troops lasted nearly one month. In revenge, the Nazis completely destroyed the ghetto. It was survived by only a few Jews including Władysław Szpilman, the hero of the movie “The Pianist” by Roman Polanski.
