Great memorial of a very sad time in history !!!!The memorial is next to the Jewish Polish museum which is a must as well. Information given at the museum will help explain the hell that took place in Poland during the holocaust and about this memorial in particular

A must see while in Warsaw. I was moved by the flowers and notes left at the memorial. It's right in front of the Polin museum so easy to see

The Jewish Ghetto Memorial is a magnificent sculpture that sends out a powerful & inspiring message. It is perfectly located close to the Jewish Museum but far enough to qualify as a stand alone attraction. The facial expressions on the characters are quite fantastic - almost combining a despair yet unbreakable resolve. A must-do on a visit to Warsaw.

It is a sad and glorious place. Sad, because it reminds about tragedy of Jews, murdered mercilessly by Germans during the World War II. Glorious, as it says about their heroic fight an about help that was given then by most of Poles ( like Zegota organisation and many individuals ). I strongly regret that I don't know kadish prayer,... More

This memorial is a very nice reminder of what transpired in this area of Warsaw when the ghetto was completely destroyed.

This massive memorial is a two-sided stone carving of the Jewish resistance fighting on one side and on the other side they are marching to their death in the Treblinka Death Camp. The memorial is located where the fighting began not far from the city center.
