Visiting Poland was like the cherry on top of the cake on our summer trip to Europe. We love the people, the food, the history, the atmosphere, and most of all I was really impressed by the neatness/cleanness of the city, really amazing! We enjoy...More

Take you time here and just wander about and enjoy the journey. Not too many people here, so it's easy to just explore in your own time.

Poorly kept and signposted for such an important historical monument. The very small piece of the ghetto wall that is left also creates the impression that the locals would be happier to forget their whole historical past,

There isn't actually much left to see or visit, with the exception of pieces of the walls surrounding the ghetto area, but one can definitely and still get a feeling for the hardship and sufference endured by the Jews, who were forced to live there.

The Warsaw ghetto was leveled by the Germans after the ghetto resistance fighters were subdued. There isn't,much to see except pieces of the wall that surrounded the ghetto. In no way do you get a feeling for the hardship endured by the Jews forced to...More

The memorial marks a dark chapter in Warsaw's history, but is a fitting memorial to those confined there. It's too large to be ignored, and both dark and beautiful. A place of pilgrimage for those of Jewish faith or their descendents. There is a museum...More
