“hard to find but worth the effort”

Reviewed 25 August 2014

On our second attempt we found the wall. You need to go through the gate of 53 as the wall is the divide between 53 & 55, you cannot gain access through number 55. There is a small information board with a map showing the area the ghetto covered. Its only a small section of the wall just over 5m but it is a sad reminder of the past.

Our tour guide said there were no remnants left . However, we discovered this on a map and asked the concierge how to get to it. It was about 10 minutes from our hotel. Interesting map on the wall which shows how extensive the ghetto was. There are bricks missing which have been put in museums in Israel, Australia and Houston. Very difficult to find if you do not speak and know polish. Ask a young person who speaks English

It is very sad that the only remained wall is few meters that at least there is something reminded. It is just a wall but it tell a very important story of the human history. Do not miss.

It is a meter high brick wall with a plaque and a few memorial candles. That is the sum total of what is left of the ghetto. Very sad. Maybe it is easier for people living there to forget the past. We struggled to find it as we were on the wrong side of the main road by the mercure hotel. You must cross and go to sienna 55 and walk through a property. We also saw the synagogue and 1 or 2 buildings where the Jews lived in the ghetto. I would have liked the government to buy those buildings and create museums showing the flats they lived in. They were tiny and 6 families lived in each one. Other than this wall and museums there is no history of the ghetto to see. It's all gone.

This fragment of the Ghetto Wall is not so much a destination for us as something we happened across accidentally. It was more overwhelming because it was not expected. The very limited fragment is really a stimulus to your own imagination to consider the whole significance of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
