Jewish Ghetto Memorial, is one of the most important sites in the city. Very difficult to stand in front of the memorial site. Thinking about what happened to those Jewish people during the Holocaust. Sad place that must be visited if you are Jewish or not.

Built in 1948 on the site where the first clashes of the tragic, hopeless Warsaw Ghetto uprising took place five years earlier, this massive two-sided monument has become an icon and a site for Jewish pilgrimage. One side depicts a relief of the persecuted people in the ghetto, while the other side, which faces what is now the POLIN Museum,... More

I was very moved after having see the movie "the pianist" to think it happened where I was standing !!! My whole Polish experience was centered around all the people who were tortured by the Germans: jews, Poles, Jehovah's Witnesses, gypsies in Auschwitz wow how could this happen!!!

It's located outside the POLIN museum. It is quite impressive I must say. Make sure you visit the museum as well, as it will make a fantastic experience.

Obviously you can not capture in one place, no matter how large the memory of the six million. But the monument stands in front of the Museum of History of Polish Jews is certainly impressive and reminds everyone of Jewish heroism during the Holocaust. A must for any visitor Jews in Warsaw, and everyone.

Very nice memorial outside of the POLIN museum. Visited it as part of the free walking tour about Jews in Warsaw. The monument has two sides. I recommend you to visit the museum after seeing the monument, on Thursdays you do not have to pay the entrance fee.

The Warsaw Ghetto Memorial stands in stark contrast to the modern and warm feeling POLIN museum standing opposite which I think is an appropriate juxtaposition, the memorial reminds us of the terrible things that have passed and the tones and mood of the museum give a sense of hope for the future. The memorial in itself is large and austere... More
