[wydarzenie oraz poniższy opis wyłącznie w języku angielskim]
Imagine a city that had almost 1,4 million people before World War II. Six years later, its ruins were inhabited by only several thousand survivors. Imagine a city that fought against the occupiers from the very first till the very last day. Imagine a city where every street, every corner, every courtyard has a wartime story to tell.
First, there was 1939 and the German and Soviet invasions. Then, years of occupation. In 1940, the Germans created the largest ghetto in occupied Europe here, which razed to the ground in 1943 after the crushing of the Jewish uprising. A year later, the city was again in flames– this time because of the Polish national uprising of 1944. After 63 days of heavy urban fighting, it was crushed while the Red Army stood idle on the other side of the Vistula River. When they finally crossed over, the city and its people were no more.
Enter a world of unimaginable terror and brutality. Understand people’s eagerness to fight back. Feel the grave meaning of the decisions they had to make. Listen to stories of bravery and cowardice, loyalty and betrayal, but also of daily life under the occupation. Enter a different world – the world of Warsaw at war.

Tours operate in our regular "free tour" formula - it is up to you to decide how to reward a guide for his work. The amount is voluntary. You can think of a tour as a trip to the cinema though. Similarly - you will have fun for about 2 hours. Let the amount reflect the ticket price - whether you were in a cheap studio cinema or in an expensive multiplex, it is only your decision! However, we ask you to restrain yourself and do not eat popcorn during the tour 😉
