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.

The idea which this monument can transmit to anyone is that people can sacrifice themselves for freedom, the way Mordechai Anielewiczdid and his fighters did during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943. Located in a large square in front of the POLIN Musem, the monument is mostly a bas-relief in which the prisoners are represented breaking the Ghetto Walls. The... More

A very moving statue, especially for me, as I am half-Jewish and my Grandmother escaped with my father from Germany when he was 8 years old, in 1934. I really recommend this statue and the museum.

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.
