Worth finding
Sep 2020
This is a little tricky to find as it is in the middle of a housing estate but Google Maps will take you there if you follow it. Definitely worth the effort to see this important piece of history. It does hit home that people will have lived within these walls when you look at the building around - it's easy to visualise how this was the Ghetto.

Standing in the shadow of the wall chills the soul
Jun 2019
Tucked into a courtyard between two nondescript apartment buildings on Zlota Street a couple of blocks from the Westin hotel, the Fragment of the Ghetto Wall is a little hard to find, but it is the perfect place to begin your exploration of the remains of the Ghetto, which includes nearby remaining pre-War buildings, some pock-marked by bullets, and the Footbridge of Memory which linked the larger and smaller Ghettos. A perfect starting point because you can stand in its shadow, see its height, touch the construction and, hear the sounds of life going on as usual on the other side as those imprisoned in the Ghetto no doubt could back in those terrible days in the early 1940s.

On one level, it is just a brick wall like so many others around the world. On another level, it is the embodiment of mankind’s inhumanity. Tall, but not so tall that you could not think of scaling it. Thick, but not so thick that you could not think of breaking it down. But tall enough and thick enough to have imprisoned tens of thousands who were then murdered. The somber and evocative experience is tactile and physical, rather than wholly one of the imagination, and all the more powerful for it.

Be thankful that walls can't speak - would be unbearable

Just a small piece of brick wall but so charged with tragedy that you might hear it sob. Actually a much starker monument to the Jewish People's horrors that many of those more artistic ones you find erected around Europe.

Difficult to see if you don't join to a tour

Mainly there are only three fragment remains of the wall which surrounded Warsawa guetto. Two are inside the inner courtyards of building, so it's impossible to access to them if you are not in an organised tour. There are a third remain near Zlota street. If you pick up a map from Tourist Information office it is marked on it. Small remain near 3 metres.

Remnant of Warsaw Ghetto
Jul 2019 • Family
Although just a remnant of the Warsaw Ghetto, it was moving to see. Kind of hard to find. We walked about a mile from our hotel. It is behind the Palace of Culture and Science in the middle of a neighborhood/commercial district. We had to walk around to find the entrance located between some shops. We spent some time absorbing the energy of the wall and the suffering of the people who were housed there. Never forget!

hard to find ....use google maps....but worth the effort
Jul 2019 • Couples
Hidden within the courtyard of several large blocks of apartmentsome finding this can be a challenge. Trust Google maps and you will come across it. In one way it is nothing just the remains of a wall, in another it is everything telling the story of unimaginable cruelty and suffering. Just stand by it for a moment and reflect or pray; its that sort of place.

Tricky to find and not too much to see
Apr 2019 • Friends
You need a little perseverance to find the remnants of the walls of the notorious Warsaw Ghetto, hidden away in a small residential complex off the main road. Not too much to see once you do successfully find it.
