This memorial fo the Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw commemorates a thousand years of Jewish life and contribution to society in Warsaw. The memorial is right in front of the Jewish Museum encompassing the same topics. Very poignant is my best summary.

This is a very impressive memorial in Warsaw. When I was there there were many more flowers at the base. Worth a visit

This monument cannot tell the entire horror of the holocaust but it's a great and permanent reminder of how far humans can go to destroy each others.

Europe in general has plenty of monuments in tribute to the war victims and/ or heroes. This is another one of them, and it's also a cool one. Although there are many others that worth the visit way more.

This monument is adjacent to the POLIN Museum, and is somewhat a contrast to the new-age, modern look of the museum. But this makes it perfect and brings the monument to stand out for itself.

An attractive building pulls you in as you approach. The architect obviously had a feel for the space and its purpose. The soaring entrance is at once inviting, uplifting and formal. The exhibits were well presented, clear with good signage and enough space so it never felt crowded. We went in late September, so perhaps the large groups were no... More

This sad monument commemorates the tragic and awful history of Jews in Warsaw during WWII. It's in the area where the Warsaw Ghetto was at those times. It's a place to pay your respects to all those innocent victims. Opposite it is a striking building of Polin - Polsih Jews museum.
