Warsaw: Jewish Heritage Private Walking Tour

1. Warsaw: Jewish Heritage Private Walking Tour

Begin at Prozna Street, the only former Warsaw Ghetto street still featuring as many 4 tenement houses, and then walk to Grzybowski Square. From here, discover the former Jewish district's most important places. From Nozyk Synagogue, the only surviving prewar Jewish house of prayer in Warsaw, to the remains of the Ghetto wall which marks the border between the Warsaw Ghetto and the "Aryan" part of the city. See Walicow Street with its unique Jewish tenement houses and Chłodna Street where the Jewish “Bridge of Sighs” existed. Visit the street named after Polish Jew Ludwik Zamenhof, the inventor of the international language Esperanto, and then travel along the Route Recalling the Martyrdom and the Struggle of the Jews. This street is designated by blocks of black stone with the names of individuals who fought in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Have a chance to see a building that was previously home to Jewish orphans as well as a monument of its founder and some Jewish children in the orphanage's yard. Go to the “Gesiowka” concentration camp which was founded on the ruins of the Ghetto. Almost 5000 Jews whose origins were Greek, French, and Hungarian were transported from here to Auschwitz. Also here you will see the engraved verse from the Book of Job (16:18): ‘O earth, cover not thou my blood, And let my cry have no resting-place’. The Ghetto Heroes Monument (Pomnik Bohaterów Getta) located in front of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews (POLIN) was built from the rocks that were supposed to be used by Germans to build monuments commemorating Hilter’s victories. You will see the POLIN Museum from the outside and get to know the double meaning of the POLIN word. After the 3-hour tour, you can buy separate tickets to go inside the museum that was designed by Finnish architects.
