This is a simple square that would pass unnoticed if not for the metal chairs, a stark reminder of the Jewish people killed in the holocaust.

This is a stunning and very moving sight because of what these chairs represent. Please don't do the tourist thing and sit on them remember to show a bit of class and respect. Fab little visit and Schindlers factory is just around the corner. Plus...More

We got a one of those buggys here and were surprised and how little is left of the original ghetto. The chairs are a moving tribute to all those that suffered at the hands of the Nazi's.

Very touching place of course, as a memorial for those who did not survive. However, it is a pity that only this place & the Pharmacy remains from the entire Ghetto. There is another small portion of the Ghetto wall, but it has been removed...More

Right across the road from Eagles Pharmacy, the Ghetto Square is a quiet and respectful reminder of the struggles faced by the Jewish community as they were forced into the Ghetto during WW2. It is moving and worth a visit if you are also visiting...More

To be found not far from crossing the bridge Powstancow Slaskich this square has 65 chairs dotted around, some decorative most not. It's a good place to stop and reflect on what happened here, either on your way to or returning from Schindlers Factory.

This is a quiet reminder of the horror the Jews faced during the German reign in Poland. The empty chairs were used to represent the various household items left behind by the families when they were forced out. Also, the chairs represent the Jews who...More

The Ghetto Heroes Square is between Schindler’s Factory, and the Eagle Pharmacy, which sits on the corner of the Square. Sad, and kind of bothersome to see tourists whooping it up on the chairs for photo ops. But then again, that’s yet another reason wars...More

I'm really sorry we walked there. Sorry not to be more help. The taxis are cheap and they don't rip you off. I suggest you get a map and walk as you see so many sights along the way.
