What you can expect

U ntil 1939, Warsaw held a distinguished status as a prominent hub of Jewish orthodoxy. A significant 30% of the city’s population was of Jewish origin, with Yiddish as their cherished mother tongue. Figures of remarkable influence, including Menahem Begin, Ludwik Zamenhof (the visionary behind Esperanto), and the pianist Władysław Szpilman, renowned from Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist,” exemplify the deep-rooted connections between Warsaw and these luminaries.

How did Warsaw ascend to become the global epicenter of Jewish culture? What was the location of the Ghetto district? Who were the valiant heroes of the Jewish Uprising? And what characterizes contemporary Jewish life in Warsaw? Answers to these inquiries, along with many others, await you on our complimentary walking tour.

While traces of the Jewish ghetto are becoming scarce, indelible symbols of Jewish presence in Warsaw continue to resonate. Embark on our Jewish Walking Tour, an illuminating exploration that unveils the lesser-known realm of this vibrant city.
