“A haunting, must-visit while in Warsaw.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This haunting monument, where school kids from Israel come to remember their slain ancestors almost every day, is a reminder to us all, that the Holocaust happened quite recently, and that all the inhumane crimes committed, were committed by human beings.
This monument, despite being silent, screams "NEVER AGAIN!" in a strong and clear voice.
Try to visit the monument while a ceremony of an Israeli school takes place.
Listening to those young kids sing the Israeli anthem will be an experience you'd never forget.

“A glimpse into the past”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

This was a chance to get a better understanding of the history of Poland by visiting this significant memorial. I was left with a sensation of feeling past lives lost, but saw the hope held for the future of the people who continue to live in the present as a result of what their ancestors went through.

“So important”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The ghetto has such an importance in the history of Jews in WW2 but nowadays there is nothing that can reflect the real magnitude of that area besides the memorial that shows the size and location as well as different pavement marks in different locations in the city that mark the places were the ghetto walls were.

“Monument to the Warsaw Ghetto Heroes & Museum of the History of Polish Jews”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

The Monument unveiled on April 19,1948 depicts on the front side a group of the Ghetto Uprising fighters with their modest weapons - firearms, hand-made grenades and road stones and on the backside stone relief the march of Jewish mothers with children to the Umschlagplatz where Jews were concentrated and loaded to raiway freight cars transporting them to the Treblinka extermination camp. The Museum is located just opposite to the Monument. It openedits doors to the public in April 2013. The architectural design (designer Finnish architect Rainer Mahlamaki) and solution both outside and inside are extraordinary and have been admired by thousands of visitors. The entrance in the front wall is situated in a breach symbolising the waters of the Red Sea that stepped aside allowing biblical Jews to escape from the slavery in Egypt. The concrete half-round walls in the interior are plastered in a way to imitate the marble stone and give the impression of space and liberty. The official inauguration of the Museum core exhibition is scheduled to June 2014.
