The Memorial also known as the Monument to the ghetto heroes was built in the memory of the Jewish uprising in the Warsaw ghetto in1943 during the Second World War. It is located at a place where the Warsaw ghetto once existed.The magnificent sculpture is a monument of great historical importance.

A reminder to everyone what happens when evil is allowed to flow unchecked. The horrendous deaths of innocent children and adults is a stain on humanity. The bravery of the Jewish people is astounding.

I made the visit of this place with a free walking tour group. The description of the battle between the jews and the germans is freezing.
