Outside the Museum of the History of Polish Jews is this large, but not overdone, memorial to the Holocaust. It is stark yet descriptive. While not worth, in my view, a "special" trip to see, its proximity to the Museum makes it an easy visit.

At the heart of the former Jewish ghetto and in front of the incomparable POLIN museum this is a poignant and moving memorial to heroes and their fatal suffering in heinous times. It is laden with symbolism, its wall resonating not only with the awful ghetto walls but also with Jerusalem's Western Wall. The central figure who is standing was... More

We stopped here as part of free walking tour. The monument is well designed symbolizing people breaking through the walls of the ghetto. Well done and touching.

By visiting this Memorial, hearing about the Getto and the Up Rising you get a better idea of the hardship suffered by the people of Warsaw

This memorial is lovely and stands outside the Jewish Museum which is itself very beautiful and informative. It tells the story of the history of the Jews since time began, ending with the persecution of Jews in Poland. We spent too much time tracing the history of this religious group so did not give justice to the latter years as... More

This bold new memorial has been designed to perfection. An almost bottomless amount of knowledge has been converted into a museum reality to experience with all senses. A must when visiting Poland's capital. Depending on your degree of interest into detail, just take some more time for this visit. It will give a lasting impression. Great!

Beautiful and moving memorial in front of the Excellent museum. After visiting the museum it is worth taking few minutes to pay respect to people who died fighting for their rights.
