Warsaw Ghetto Wall

Poland
Historic Structure / Memorial

This Warsaw Ghetto wall fragment stands in a secluded apartment courtyard accessed from ul. Zlora 62 and ul. Sienna 55.
 
Built in 1940 by the Nazis as part of the newly designated Jewish District, the brick wall at Sienna 55 stands at ten feet high and is the largest remaining wall fragment in Warsaw. The wall features commemorative plaques on the structure’s “Aryan” side established by Polish historian, WWII veteran, and Sienna apartment resident Mieczysław Jędruszczak in the 1970s. Two bricks on the “Aryan” side of the wall were removed in 1989 and sent to the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington to create a casting of the wall for the museum’s permanent Holocaust exhibition.

The easiest way to access the wall is through the courtyard entrance at ul. Zlota 62.
