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.

Pomnik Bohaterów Getta Reviews
ברחבה שבכניסה למוזיאון לתולדות יהודי פולין, ניצבת אנדרטה מיוחדת ומרגשת מאד שמספרת סיפור עצוב על רקע השכונה המנומנמת מסביב. more »At the plaza at the entrance to the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, a special and exciting monument tells a sad story about the backdrop of the sleepy town neighborhood.
Quando si stà al cospetto di questo monumento commemorativo la memoria ci riporta a questo infausto scempio e ci fa vergognare come esseri viventi di questo olocausto more »When we are in front of this memorial, the memory brings us back to this unfortunate havoc and makes us ashamed as living beings of this holocaust
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.
