Warsaw: Everyday Jewish Ghetto Guided Tour with Jewish Cemetery
We had a great walking tour of Warsaw. Our guide was knowledgeable in all aspects of the city. The only thing I would recommend for this tour is also see 14 Waliców Street ghetto buildings. It would have tied up the tour beautifully. None the less, we had a great time

The History of the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto

Before World War II, there were over 400,000 Jews living in Warsaw, and by 1942, all members of the Jewish community were forced into the German-constructed ghetto, demarcated by a 10-foot (3-meter) high wall circling around a specified sector of the Jewish district. In addition to being the restrained living quarters of the Jewish community during the Nazi occupation, the Warsaw Ghetto was also the place from which thousands of men, women, and children were dispatched to the Treblinka Concentration camp in the summer of 1942, which, in turn, led to the Ghetto Uprising.
