Learning about the history of the Jews in Warsaw (at one point they were 30% of the population) was eye opening. Everyone should go and visit the memorial and museum. We seem to so easily forget how tragic this is and with what's going on in the world now with Holocaust deniers, we (as a society) can't forget.

The monument is clearly powerful. What hit us hardest was the baby behind Mordechai. There was no one there when we came, which definitely made it more somber. The other side is a replica from Yad Vashem in Israel. This monument is very close to many others on Jewish tours (we went alone) so be sure to also visit the... More

A reminder to everyone what happens when evil is allowed to flow unchecked. The horrendous deaths of innocent children and adults is a stain on humanity. The bravery of the Jewish people is astounding.

I made the visit of this place with a free walking tour group. The description of the battle between the jews and the germans is freezing.

A very strong reminder of the brutal events that happened there. A strange contrast to the vibrant city all around it. The Museum of Jewish history right by it is also very interesting and moving

Touching monument right in front of the Museum of Jewish history and culture in Poland. Almost 3 million Polish Jews were killed during the Holocaust (out of a total of 6 million Jews).

This memorial has two sides, this main side faces the new museum, but don't neglect the other side showing the defeat and beaten down residents. Comparing the two sides make this monument all the more moving.

A beautiful piece of art work and worth reflecting on. Right in front of the Jewish museum it is hard to miss. Some other statues/remembrance pieces around here. This is the site of the former ghetto but nothing left. It is surrounded by apartments. There is some street art nearby also worth a look

This big memoria is situated right next to the jewish memorial museum. Easy to find. The statue in it self in interesting and yes, impressive. But also look around, in the park next to it is located a lot of art. Definately worth seeing and experiencing.
