About The Warsaw Ghetto Fighters Monument

The Warsaw Ghetto Fighters Monument (Pomnik Bohaterow Getta) commemorates those who fought and perished in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

Beginning on 19 April 1943 and lasting almost a month, this dramatic, ultimately thwarted, insurgency took place as Nazi forces went to liquidate Warsaw’s ghetto.

The monument itself, which was designed by Natan Rapaport and unveiled on the fifth anniversary of the uprising, offers a moving depiction of the fighters led by Mordechaj Anielewicz as well as portraying the suffering of more vulnerable inhabitants.
