A simple monument, but with the powerful massage on the lives & times of Jews. It is enough to stir something in you.

The monument is just outside Polin museum. A short bus ride from Krakowskie Przedmiescie. It's a good idea to buy a day pass for the transit (15 zloty) and go to all the places that are farther away. Since my mom spent the occupation in Warsaw ( catholic) and talked about the times, I found it very moving. Combine it... More

Lots of writings give the impression that the Jewish Ghetto is a part of the city. In truth it was destroyed and built over. The memorial erected to the memory of the 2 million Jews slaughtered in the holocast is impressive and the artwork captures the struggle and the emotion of the events. While here take the time to visit... More

This is a work of art - really amazing place to visit. It has so much to see so it does become a but tiring. Prepare at least half a day for this museum.

Many of the books on WWII refer to the Warsaw Ghetto as if it were still a major part of the city. In truth the Infamous Warsaw Ghetto was destroyed during the war and little remains but memorials and pieces salvaged from the original buildings. When the tour buses pass thorugh, they talk about the misery endured and the lives... More

The Polish government gave the city of Warsaw a beautiful memorial to remember the 2million jews lost in the Holocaust. It is quite complete with a thousand year history of the jews in Poland. A very complete and maybe too long a tour ; we were there for 3 hours which were a bit too exhausting and with no place... More

This is a powerful memorial created just a couple of years after the war ended by the artist Natan Rapaport. His first design, which is on the other side of the monument, was considered "too Jewish" by the Soviets. Commemorating the martyrs of the concentration camps, it is reminiscent of the bas relief inside the Arch of Titus that depicts... More
