Lost for words. One of the most moving things I've seen! Difficult to find- as is sienna 55! But stick with it! If you live Jewish history it will blow you away!

Love how little bits of this earth shattering history is hidden around the city x

I have visited the Fragment of the Warsaw Ghetto Wall twice now. Once in September 2021 and most recently in October 2022. The first time I went I found it quite tricky to find as it is tucked down an alley to some apartments. Even though there is a signpost it is easy to miss. Therefore on my second visit I have taken a couple of photographs to help people locate the entrance to where the Wall is. If you look at my photographs you will see I have marked a yellow arrow on two of them. One is the view down the street as you approach and you can see the blue sign on a post to the left of the photo. The second is taken facing the driveway / alley that you have to walk down and then keep bearing to the right to get to the Fragment of the Ghetto Wall. When you get to the wall there are some commemorative plaques and some information on the Ghetto Wall. It is well worth a visit especially like me if you like WW2 era history and artifacts.
Hope my images help people find it a bit easier.

During World War II, the Warsaw Ghetto was walled off by the Nazi. Over the following decades, the remains of the Ghetto have gradually disappeared from Warsaw. Only three fragments of the original Ghetto Wall exist today and are hidden in the backyard of a housing complex (55 Sienna Street, 62 Złota Street, and 11 Waliców Street). If you attempt to locate these fragments, you will find yourself at a row of shops. Asking directions, the shopkeepers will direct you to a narrow lane which will take you to the courtyard were fragment of the Ghetto Wall can be viewed. At the conclusion of the War in 1945, this area was levelled, and most artifacts of the Ghetto were destroyed except for these three fragments of the original wall. Today these remaining parts of the wall stand as a symbol of Polish desire for freedom. Each wall bears a commemorative plaque dedicated to those individuals who died in this tragic war. This a very emotional and difficult memorial to visit. The Fragment of the Ghetto Wall is a must visited site in Poland.

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.

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.

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.

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.
