Viewing what took place is something everyone ought to be able to see. How any human could do what they did then and what they are doing now is absolutely beyond comprehension.

This area was once inside the Warsaw Ghetto (October 1940 to May 1943) which held over 400k people until mass deportation to Treblinka in 1942 reduced the number to around 60k (approx), many of whom participated in the Ghetto Uprising in 1943.

I could think of so many things that could be a tribute to those who suffered, lost lives, make a statement of this time in our history. I really was expecting something grand. I wish they would have more of a museum and larger than life memorial.

i loved this monument. I strongly recommend a visit to the Jewish Ghetto Memorial. It´s true that that the ghetto, doesn´t exist anymore. mas but this monument is a landmark. When i looked to the Memorial, i was thinking about those brave men and women who choose to fight to be free. History of manking was written here...

This was a nice place to visit to get the feel of the area. As you stand there you know you are in the area of the Ghetto and this is significant as people left here for Treblinka. Nice monument as it was 2 sided and you got to see the side of the resistance fighters

This monument sits at the heart of where the Jewish Ghetto once stood. There are very few remains of the ghetto left. The monument sits in a park beside a museum which opened in 2013. It is meant to represent both the ghetto wall and western wall in Jerusalem, there are a couple of menorahs either side. The rear of... More

This bass relief and sculpture is very poignant and moving. Each of the two sides is different. Enjoyed best if you have a guide to explain it to you. Among the best things we saw in Warsaw.

When my wife & I travelled to Poland, and a pretty little town called Oswiecim, just nearby we visited a terrible place. My beautiful wife collected a lovely smooth rock from the ground where we visited. I collect rocks from all places we have travelled and this was going to be a very special rock from our trip, based on... More
