“A poignant reminder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2014

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.

“Part of the tragic history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

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!

“Informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

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

“Relevant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

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 our self-planned itinerary around Jewish history/landmarks so good to see. Our Lonely Planet Guide provided the descriptions and stories we need so a good idea to take one along.

“Stunning!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

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.
