The monument is located right in front if the Polin Museum. I believe it's a real must to go see it and pay respects to the thousands of people who died fighting for their lives in the final extermination of the Ghetto. Great monument. You shouldn't miss it!

Just beside the Museum of history of polish jews you will be able to find this monument, is really impressive and it seems it's always decorated with flowers... I'm not too knowledgeable about it but I would definitely recommend a visit.

One can only imagine what the Ghetto was like as nothing original remains. Very emotional to think what awful things happened here. The film "The Pianist" captures the horror.

The museum is enormous - you could spend an entire day there and you wouldn't be able to cover everything. Personally it's because of that, that I'm only rating it 3 starts. I'd give 2.5 if I could - too much is happening, and when you're in Warsaw for a limited time, like we were, you don't want to spend... More

The section that we found is hidden. It took some doing to find it, but yet it was worth it. You have to look for a small drive through which leads to a court yard in the far back. When I look at the wall, I try to imagine all those who were barred out and those who were caged... More

This museum is remarkable. The history of Jews in Poland is long and complicated. This museum deals with this in a way that makes sense of it all. It is also very moving.

Somehow this manages to be both grand and evocative yet downplayed and full of proud dignity at the same time. Don't go out of your way to see it, but it's a great monument to check out if you are in the vicinity of POLIN, the Jewish history museum.

Visiting these memorials with a guide who knows the history behind them is the best way experience them. The story is an emotional one, it tells of loss, despair, courage, adversity, brutality and dignity. It's an unforgettable experience, and seeing the other monuments in the near vicinity ties it all together in a narrative about WW2 and the courage of... More

This is another great memorial to the sufferning events of WWII. Really sobering and another reminder of what the people of Warsaw and the rest of Poland have risen from.
