This is very impressive memorial, tells the story about Jewish fight against the Germans in ghetto Warsaw during WWII, this fight continued for few month and the Allie Armies by diverting two divvsions from the east front to Warsaw. At the end last twenty five Jewish Fighters committed suicide in order not to fall prisoners to the Nazis.

While the museum costs to enter there is a first level which you can enter into for free and check out examples of Jewish life. The monument is outside of the museum and is very touching.

One of many monuments in Warsaw that cannot be bypassed, a must see, full of symbolism and references to oppression and killing.

One of the highlights for Jewish history in the city. Most of the walls from the ghetto have been taken down. This is worth seeing.

Worth the walk from the Market Square - 10 minutes maximum. Part of a sightseeing day. Photographs are very moving when you view them upon return home.

I am not Jewish,but this is a very moving memorial,indeed.You are surrounded by soviet era blocks of flats and it is hard to realise the horror of the wartime ghetto and the one sided battle between the Jewish population and the Nazis.Photos of the ghetto show this area wasnt destroyed it was obliterated .Visit it,show respect and admire the guts...

I went there with a walking tour and really appreciated learning the history and inhumanity that this monument signifies. The stories break your heart and I think this is one of the only monuments I remember ever seeing where the men and women heroes that they are look weak and tired, and for good reason of course. The monument has... More

Even if you are not Jewish, this is the ONE place in Warsaw that you want to have been to. It reminds one of the most horrific moment among the very dark moments of human History. The place atmosphere is, as expected, very special. But I must say that seeing accidentally on the pavement and in the parks the ghetto... More
