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.

A very crucial part of the history of the city. So sad, and as you stand, you cannot believe the events that took place here.

Knowing German to translate it, someone would think there was a station for loading cattle or some newly produced goods from a factory. Unfortunately it was people loading station on their final journey to any of Nazi concentration camps. Simple wagon monument in white marble resembles the WWII horrors. Never to be forgotten.

A simple but powerful monument. There was a huge crowd there when I arrived, but they soon melted away leaving me to contemplate and say a prayer on my own.

Moving place to go. Thinking of the 300,000 jews transported through here to the extermination camps, sit a moment and think about how many men, women and children went to their deaths from here.

Right in the middle of this busy modern city, Umschlagplatz is little more than a marble monument to the 300,000 Warsaw Jews who were rounded up and processed here for transport to the many concentration camps set up around Poland. As I walked through the monument to see the small open field that fronts the train tracks where the Jews... More

By standing on this site nearly 70 years afters Jews were deported from this point to their death is a victory over evil! This is the last stop in a long walk you should make starting at the museum of polish Jews ( polin) about 15 minutes walk from there. Just stand there for a few minutes in memory of... More

The structure itself is very simple, just a small enclosure but the meaning behind it is profound. A lasting tribute to the holocaust. This monument is near the Jewish history museum. Visit this on the way there.

This symbolises a train carriage. A carriage that would have held Jews from the ghetto on their way to Treblinka death camp. Nobody survived a trip there in the true horrific part of world war 2. Worth a quick look or as part of Jewish tour from "free" tours.

This was the station from which Jewish men, women and children where sent to death camps during WWII. The memorial is very simple looking. It has a clean architecture with the most popular Jewish-Polish names engraved on the walls. Interesting fact: In history books, the place is named Umschlagplatz (in German) when referred to as the station used for the... More
