The Warsaw Ghetto was the largest of all the Jewish ghettos in Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II. It was established by the Nazi German authorities in the Muranów neighborhood of the Polish capital between October and November 16, 1940; within the new General Government territory of German-occupied Poland. There were over 400,000 Jews imprisoned there, at an area of 3.4km2, with an average of 7.2 persons per room; barely subsisting on meager food rations. From the Warsaw Ghetto, Jews were deported to Nazi camps and mass-killing centers. In the summer of 1942 at least 254,000 Ghetto residents were sent to the Treblinka extermination camp during Großaktion Warschau under the guise of "resettlement in the East" over the course of the summer.The death toll among the Jewish inhabitants of the Ghetto is estimated to be at least 300,000 killed by bullet or gas, combined with 92,000 victims of rampant hunger and hunger-related diseases, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the casualties of the final destruction of the Ghetto.

  • You may pass not seeing them but it's a piece of history you have to not missing about one of the greatest mess in the history of the humankind. Our guide was like the top of the greatest. Been there before in Warsaw, but just now I really saw
  • If you have the time , strongly recommend going to the museum of polish Jews before you see this , it will give you good context
  • A Meaning Monument to never forget the history. Very impressive with the sculptures and the greens columns behind getting the whole square
  • Impressive to be so close and to read some of the history.
  • It's important that we are regularly reminded about the history of this city. We have to have a sense of how there has been such dark days and yet we strongly rise out of tragedy to build this regional hub of a city.
