Monument to the ghetto uprising

The Nazis regarded the establishment of ghettos as a provisional measure to control/segregate Jews. Warsaw ghetto was the largest ghetto in Poland, where about 450,000 Jews were crammed into ​​1.3 square miles. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was the Jewish uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto, when German troops began the second mass deportation to the concentration and death camps during World War II. It occurred between April 19 and May 6, 1943 and was led by Mordechai Anielewicz, a member of the Jewish youth movement Hashomer Hatzair, and was finally crushed by SS troops under the command of Jürgen Stroop. This monument is in the heart of the Ghetto, it reminds us of past heroes and there's a path that follows the Ghetto's perimeter. There's also a photo exhibition.

Monument to the 1944 insurrection

One of my favorite parts of Warsaw, right in front of the Church of Our Lady Queen of Poland, the Church Army. The monument is huge, it takes up a large square and commemorates the historic heroes of the Warsaw insurrection against the Nazis in 1944. The large sculpture of Wincenty Kucma represents the soldiers coming out of the sewers, a priest and other citizens who participated in the insurrection. They moved through the sewers and near the monument is one of the entrances to the sewers that was actually used. The insurrection was unsuccessful and the city was almost destroyed. The monument was opened in 1989 and the sculptures give much play to take pictures because they are so huge!
