A visit not just to the monument itself but for what it represents. Throughout the city there are testimonies of the atrocities of that period and not only that, this monument is only the most explicit @gargio76

I highly recommend a tour operator to take you to this emotive and historic place. A good narrative will enhance your experience. Millions of Jews and Catholic Christian died in Poland. This is must visit place.

At the Memorial the museum provides the visitor with a complete history from the arrival of the first Jewish travelers to the Holocaust. You can stay there for hours reading the legend of the Jewish community.

This monument is a must to all visitors to Warsaw, Jewish and non-Jewish. It is a memorial to the courage of the oppressed, weak and starving few, against the Nazi well oiled war machine.

This is one of the many memorials in Warsaw linked to WW", the Jewish Ghetto and the Uprising, so it could be easy to get blasé about just "another monument". But don't fall into the trap. Do your homework by reading up the background before you visit, and try to get a really informative guide to take you. Find a... More

Black sober memorial to the Holocaust facing POLIN, the history museum of Polish Jews where you will learn a lot about 1000 years of Jewish life in their adopted country and their influence on Polish culture.

Attended a guided tour while in Warsaw this August. The young woman that was our guide was not a Jew but has studied the Jewish history extensively. Museum is very large & unless you has hours to spend reading....I strongly suggest you do a guided tour. Well worth the modest cost.

It's a very socialist styled monument, with very unrealistic representation of the ghetto heroes on the from side, but on the back you see a more heartreaking representation of the majority of Warsaw ghetto who were not marcing but walking slowly and with pain.

This is a stark reminder of what happened to millions of people during WWII. Krakow is also a must visit for you while you are in the area.
