Historians, writers and a postman – members of the secret Oneg Shabbat group in the space of the Warsaw Ghetto

During the walk, participants will learn about the biographies of the Oneg Shabbat members – creators of the Underground Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto. The space of the ghetto was for them – as well as for about half a million Jews imprisoned there – dangerous and oppressive. This is why the conspiracy group’s activity – detailes and extensive documentation of the fate of Jews under German occupation and of the Holocaust – was one of the most significant acts of civil and intellectual resistance. The walk will tell the story of Oneg Shabbat’s members and places important for the work of the group.

Participation in the walk is free of charge. Guided tour in Polish.

The event is a part of the 15th edition of Singer’s Warsaw Festival
