The Warsaw Ghetto Trail is marked by 21 plaques positioned at key points and bearing photographs of the period. The trail traces the boundary of the area of the city in which the occupying force isolated 450,000 Jews in 1939. About a quarter of these died during this period from starvation and disease.

The plaques and accompanying tourist map were developed by Warsaw city hall, Poland’s culture ministry and the city’s Jewish Historical Institute.

Maps are available from Warsaw Tourist Information.
