This is an impressive memorial that everyone should visit when in this City Stand in front of this memorial and reflect on the sheer scale of suffering that was experienced here. It's a place that everyone should spend time at

Tiny little bit of wall to remind us of the Warsaw Jews who ended up in the ghetto then in auschwitz ... Wiped completely from the map.

Very disappointing from my view point. There is no trace of the guettho, no vestiges of its walls. Every trace of this place seems to have been erased,and maybe it is for the set. The monument is set in a rougher Art of town. The flat towers are showing their age and the. Level of neglect adds to the poignancy... More

When we visited in July 2014, the museum hadn't completely opened, so all we saw was the memorial itself. There's a Star of David cut into the lawn outside the museum and the place seems a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives. I'd strongly recommend you read HolaHoratio's review below - we also visited the bunker site just... More

We were very biased as Nathan Rappoport was a dear friend of ours but the monument is spectacular. You can feel the anguish in the larger than life faces. It is on the grounds of the soon to be open Jewish Museum and shouldn't be missed.

This is an amazing memorial to the people who had to suffer. Events that led to this memorial were terrible and hope that it never happens again.

This memorial is very impressive and so it should be, although not as moving as the one in Berlin it still has atmosphere and you cannot believe just how many Jews died, so very very sad. However it is not a morbid place and thankfully all the ghetto has been removed leaving a peaceful and poignant memorial for all to... More

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. The Memorial is a tribute to the fighters including their leader Mordechaj Anielewicz. The museum was still under... More
