“It is just a brick wall with a plaque”

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This wall is very important historically because it marks part of the boundary of the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw. Having said that, it is just several feet of a brick wall. There are two parts of it hidden within apartment building courtyards. For some, it will have an emotional impact or historical interest.

The segment of the ghetto wall that remains is short in length but tall in height. It gives a sense of being too high to climb easily and too high to jump from on top.

This monument is tucked away inside a housing estate just off Zlota Street. Look for a sign at an archway that leads to the wall, we’ll sign-posted. A must see considering the almost total devastation of Warsaw at the end of WW2. The wall has a sign and flower beds that signifies the simplicity of this piece of history. I was helped by some kind locals to wind my way through the housing estate, thank you. A short walk from the Warsaw Centralna Train Station. A highlight as this monument is the real thing.

This is tucked sort of out of the way. Once found, however, it is emotionally moving. It helps one understand, at least a little, how poorly the Jewish people were treated as they were forced to live in the ghettos.

It's hard to imagine that this is all that is left of the Ghetto walls. There isn't much to see and it is hidden in amongst apartments behind buildings and shops. It was awkward to find as there wasn't any noticable signs indicating its whereabouts, but we persevered and got to it in the end. As with a lot of other places we visited in Warsaw, a true reminder of a horrific moment in time.
