Pomnik Bohaterów Getta, Warsaw

4.5
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.

  • Amazing building from the outside in. A very humbling experience. Well presented in Polish and English. A fascinating insight into a very dark time in Polish history and that of Europe and the world. Take your time as there's loads to see.
  • Very nice monument, the Jewish museum is right next to it. It had a lot of history and very interesting.
