the old Jewish Ghetto was established in 1940 by the occupying German armies. At one point there were over 400,000 Jews living in this small ghetto and food was scarce to say the least. This was the birthplace of the Warsaw uprising and after it failed many of the Jews were then sent to concentration camps from Warsaw. Today it is filled with history and museums. Places to eat and sit and relax and have a coffee if you wish.

Most of the Jewish ghetto has been destroyed, but a part of the wall and a plaque keep the memory alive

Today a thriving Jewish district with Polin Museum, awarded Europe's best Designed Museum. In WW2, the home of the largest and longest-lasting uprising in modern Jewish history. A must.

There are countless tales that can be told about the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto. Resistance, courage, despair, fear, love, anger -- all of these things lived within the walls of this part of the city. Sadly not much other than the stories themselves and a few monuments remain. It was the largest of all Jewish Ghettos. Próżna Street is the best place to find relics of the ghetto. It's also where the annual Warsaw Jewish Festival takes place. Markers on the streets also indicate where the walls stood, and you can also visit the Nożyk Synagogue, the only surviving pre-war synagogue, which is still in use today.

The Warsaw Ghetto does not exist any longer because it was destroyed after the Ghetto uprising in 1944. There are a few buildings that survived. The site now has a monument to the Ghetto heroes and a Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
