Monument
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.

  • An emotional monument. The ghetto area is full of small statues but this one is grandiose and describes what issues all killed during WWII
  • Place that talks about the situation of Jews during world war.. Best if you go there in a guided tour. I will recommend orangeumbrella touts.
  • A monument about the Warsaw ghetto uprising. The Jews were treated terribly and tried to revolt. Take a look at it
  • Incredible memorial
  • something to remember
