“The hidden wall”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

It is not so much to see of the old Ghetto Wall, but it has an important history so it is still worth to go there. I have found four fragments. 1. Zlota 62, there is a metal gate that can be opened and then there are some signs to a wall and also another sign that show you to the next fragment. 2. Sienna 53, where you have part of the old wall. 3. Grzybowska/Ciepta there is the old main entrance to the getto (whats left of it). 4. Zlota/Twarda memory sign and markings in the walk way where the wall was.

“So Moving”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The wall is not necessarily the easiest thing to find, as it is in the middle of an apartment complex. There are actually two parts to it. If you find the bigger part that's pictured above (where there is a brick removed that was taken to the Holocaust Museum in DC, you'll want to go around the corner and see the other half. It has a map, so you can get a better idea. You go like you're trying to get out the other side of the apartment complex, then turn a corner to the left. You'll see it, as it looks like it goes right through the building. It's taller, too.

The best part, though, is the old man. He has lived in that apartment for 60 years, and the wall is right next to his back yard. If you speak German or Polish, he will tell you all about the area and the Ghetto. He will point to the area behind the chain link fence where 3 bombs fell. He'll tell you that there used to be a hospital and a school. I couldn't understand all of it, because my German is elementary, but he'll do his best to make you understand. Whether you speak his languages or not, he will ask you to sign his book. He has been keeping it for 40 years, having visitors to the wall sign it. He wants it to become part of the history, and it's now several volumes long.

Please sign his book, he loves it so. Bring a pen.

“Poignant Reminder”
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”
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”
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
