Monument to the Ghetto Uprising, Warsaw: 114 reviews and 380 photos
The 2-floor tall wall called the Monument in my picture is the heart of the exposition in Warsaw Uprising Museum. The structure is made of metal tiles with carved dates: day by day from the beginning of Uprising on August 1 to the end on October 5. The monument speaks or rather throbs like the heart of Warsaw during the Uprising.
Various, different sounds of the Uprising (3 recordings, 5 min. each) are heard from each crack of the Monument: loud and scaring sounds of fights, original sounds of uprising radio, street noice, songs sung by insurgents and prayers of civillians. I was walking around the monument to hear different sound effects in each place. Watch for really loud sounds of bomb explosions, especially the heavy German bombs called by insurgents "cows" because of the characteristic moooo sound (warning) they made before the explosion.
There are calendar cards to take put in chronological order along the visitor's itinerary. Each card includes short desription of the events of specific day. When I was in the museum and collected all uprising days, the cards were available exclusively in Polish language although they are translated into English in the museum webpage.
