“Poignant Reminder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Standing in front of a fragment of the ghetto wall is an experience that should not be missed. It was a bit difficult to find and we almost gave up, but luckily the gate between 53 and 55 Sienna was open and we found the wall quickly. The history that the wall represents is something that should never be forgotten. I'm grateful that this authentic piece of it still stands as the impact of seeing it in person is much stronger than reading about it in a history book.

“Location of the remaining wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

There are 2 fragments that I found, and since most of the guides don't indicate how to find them, here is where there are located :

_ 53, Sienna street : at the back of the playground of the school
_ 62, Zlota street : in the backyard
(you could also access it via 55, Sienna street if the entry is not closed but it was when I was there, as it is a private property)

“Lest we forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

There is so much to see in Warsaw, but we should always remember the price that some paid during what was a horrible time in this city's history. The city has taken time to show people glimpses of this history. Don't miss the Rising museum also

“Authentic piece of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

Found it with difficulty but then that is part of the discovery of a city full of history. Worth finding and taking a photo or two. Takes much longer to find it than it does to say a prayer and take a photo or two. I would put it on the list of "must see" just because its the only authentic piece of the wall still standing.

“Moving legacy needs focus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Located just toward the City Center a couple of blocks from the Hilton Hotel it can be easily missed or overlooked. There are plaques telling what it is but again you have to look for this. The wall needs a focus and attention to be a great memorial to all that was witnessed within and without its bricked barrier.
