And happens to be at the junction of the road where my hotel was situated, otherwise I would not have known of its existence. Should be made more of as this area is being totally regenerated.

This large memorial monument has two sides. Germany's former President Willy Brandt came here and was moved my seeing the memorial. The memorial tells the story so look closely and take photos. The new Museum is across the plaza and is quite modern and the exhibits look like they are well planned.

No matter how depressing this visit might be, everybody must go to the Ghetto and reflect. History repeats itself if we are ignorant of it...

The memorial is carved in black granite blocks. These had been ordered by Hitler to make his victory memorial - quite fitting eh. The new museum alongside the memorial is a fantastic modern building and worth a look.

This haunting monument, where school kids from Israel come to remember their slain ancestors almost every day, is a reminder to us all, that the Holocaust happened quite recently, and that all the inhumane crimes committed, were committed by human beings. This monument, despite being silent, screams "NEVER AGAIN!" in a strong and clear voice. Try to visit the monument... More

This was a chance to get a better understanding of the history of Poland by visiting this significant memorial. I was left with a sensation of feeling past lives lost, but saw the hope held for the future of the people who continue to live in the present as a result of what their ancestors went through.

The ghetto has such an importance in the history of Jews in WW2 but nowadays there is nothing that can reflect the real magnitude of that area besides the memorial that shows the size and location as well as different pavement marks in different locations in the city that mark the places were the ghetto walls were.

The Monument unveiled on April 19,1948 depicts on the front side a group of the Ghetto Uprising fighters with their modest weapons - firearms, hand-made grenades and road stones and on the backside stone relief the march of Jewish mothers with children to the Umschlagplatz where Jews were concentrated and loaded to raiway freight cars transporting them to the Treblinka...
