The Warsaw ghetto was leveled by the Germans after the ghetto resistance fighters were subdued. There isn't,much to see except pieces of the wall that surrounded the ghetto. In no way do you get a feeling for the hardship endured by the Jews forced to...More

The memorial marks a dark chapter in Warsaw's history, but is a fitting memorial to those confined there. It's too large to be ignored, and both dark and beautiful. A place of pilgrimage for those of Jewish faith or their descendents. There is a museum...More

We took a tour of the ghetto on the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. It was not insightful planning, just an instance of travel serendipity that we were there at the right time. We joined a small tour group to visit the remains...More

The Warsaw Ghetto is off the beaten path and is a very small area, but worth taking the time to visit. Some things just need to be remembered.
