This is good to see in person to first hand see the bullet holes in the walls and the feel overall of the place as you walk around and think of what it must have been like. I recommend whether or not you are religious or not.

There's hardly anything left to see here, I'm afraid. And what's left is hard to find and is currently being refurbished.

There is not much left to see of the Warsaw Ghetto as the majority of it was levelled and as Warsaw is a changing city with new developments being created and historial districts slowly disappearing there is hardly any evidence of the ghetto's existence. There is one small pocket of the city where it is possible to see fragments of... More

There are a few places around Warsaw where you can see portions of the Ghetto wall. Some are tucked away and some are hidden in plain sight. There are also a number of sections on the street/sidewalk where they show where the wall used to stand. Either do your homework by studying some history or hire a guide. The old... More

The Warsaw Ghetto is not existing anymore after it was wiped from the face of the Earth by the Nazis after the unsuccessfull 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, exceptions being the wall fragments on ul. Zlota and other ruined buildings scattered around this area. All over the city are located pavement signs that are suggesting where the ghetto walls really were... More

Visiting the old Jewish ghetto is like stepping back in time - to horrible times. The ghetto symbolizes the almost total annihilation of the Jews of Poland (and of Europe, to a greater extent). The old remains of the ghetto wall are a sad reminder of the horrors of the Nazis back in WWII and it is a must visit... More

The Jewish ghetto lasted for a 1000 years. The Nazi's ended this with their methodical killing of the residents during WWII. When you walk through this area and visit the Jewish Museum and study the Jewish Memorial Sculpture in the front of the museum you will learn more about this tragic period than you ever want to know.

An interesting detail about the remainings of the walls is that there are some marks on the ground of the city. They are everywhere, as you can see in my picture, and mark the place where the limits of the walls used to be.

Warsaw Ghetto was the largest and most horrified place where many human lifes perished without a trace. Remains of it still can be found today in many forms: wall pieces, memorials, commemorative plaques... It's important that atrocities of the (Nazi) Germans never be forgotten. This place is a vivid reminder what happens when people go mad and start exterminate their... More
