This is an impressive monument in a stark part of the ghetto. it provides a place to contemplate the horrors of the holocaust. It is an area busy with tourists, but there is still and air of calm and a chance to reflect on what happened.

We'd just been to see the tomb of the unknown soldier and walked across to this sad monument. Script in polish and Hebrew, but translations not always required!

Interesting to see. I suppose the only downside is that there is not a lot there but given that Warsaw was rebuilt following the war then it's no surprise. 2 parts to the memorial which are very interesting. Quite eye opening when you think about what they people endured and were subjected to

We did the Jewish History tour around Warsaw and saw a lot of moving stuff along the way. The Ghetto Memorial like most of the tributes and monuments were great but did not include an international language translation such as english, only polish. This fact makes them less accessible to visitors. Still, it was a necessary and important part of... More

Very moving place to visit. The sculpture outside is magnificent. Although the full exhibition had not yet opened (end of Oct 14), the place is very moving.

We visited the ghetto memorial, the museum and walked, with a map, what used to be the big ghetto. It is a very moving experience, and although nothing stays of the ghetto, and what we see are nice streets lined with trees, it was shocking for me to see that the ghetto was planted in the middle of the city.

A couple of chunks of wall in the midst of apartment buildings gives a small hidden reminder of the Ghetto. I took a bit of a walk to get there but was glad I did. It is impressive that it has not all been removed.

Although the museum was not yet completely finished, the building and layout looked spectacular. There is a monument directly in front of the museum that is worth some time to visit. This stop should be on everyone's list of must see places in Warsaw!

This seems to be the most visible reminder of the Jewish Ghetto in Warsaw. Without this memorial one would never know that what existed on the ground that one was standing on. The new museum The History of the Jews of Poland will make this a must see destination for Central Europe.

Just little pieces of the old ghetto wall survived and now they are protected by UNESCO. the memorial is very small but the history behind is huge and important.
