Between the houses at No.55 Sienna Street and at No.62 Złota Street, there are still fragments of the Wall which, between November 15th, 1940, and November 20th, 1941, constituted the border of the Ghetto. The Wall was 3 metre high and covered with barbed wires. Till the end of 1941, the Wall passed in the middle of Sienna Street. Another fragment of the Wall remains in Waliców Street.This part of Warsaw was depicted with unsettling clarity by Roman Polanski in his Oscar-winning film The Pianist. Polanski survived this ghetto, and you can still find the streets where he lived and played.where 300,000 Jews were loaded onto cattle trucks bound for Treblinka.I am very sad to write this tip one day after of Quana bombing in Lebanon.

Address: Ulica Sienna 55

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
