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.

A great tribute to the people who suffered. We were at the museum nearby and wandered over to have a look at this monument.

A grey stone wall personalising the desperate effort to preserve own humanity. It sourounded by nothing related to the times which is the most shocking finding in front of the monument. Only for those who dare to spent at least 5 mins and the want to think.

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.
