There is a nice monument and that's it. No further infos or something. Definitly a historically important place but not worth a visit my opinion.

A touching memorial though a bit light on gravity compared to others nearby. This tells a necessary chapter in the story of the Polish Jews, but seems a little forgotten amongst the neighbourhood in which it is located.

Located near the Polin museum and the Mila 18 memorial this is an interesting marker of the gathering place for the Jews being loaded onto trains to the death camps. Worth a visit as a part of a walking tour of these sites.

Umschlagplatz is a site from which hundreds of thousands of Jews were sent to concentration camps. I was alone at the memorial and had some time to reflect. The memorial is simple, but powerful and is worth a visit during your time in Warsaw.
