Pomnik Bohaterów Getta, Warsaw

4.4
Erected on the spot where the first armed uprising from the Warsaw Ghetto took place, Pomnik Bohaterów Getta stands partially built of Nazi materials brought to Poland by the Germans in World War II. The decision to build the monument was made as early as 1944, but it wasn't unveiled until 1948. The figure in the middle of the central frieze represents Mordechai Anielewicz, leader of the Jewish Combat Organization, which fought against the Nazis. The figures surrounding Anielewicz are Jewish fighters armed with Molotov cocktails and guns.

  • The monument faces the Polin Museum. Its storefront (see photo) is classic, often conducive to commemorations or souvenir photos (many tourists from Israel come to collect or pay tribute to one of their parents or grandparents). But it is above all the back of the monument that is cold in the back (see photo Staffan123 of November 2018): we see a group of Jews whose Rabbi walk to their place of death, a young child looks at the rank and says "why?". terrifying
