In a square where four streets meet, at the location of the former Warsaw Ghetto, at the place where the first armed clashes between partisans and the Nazi took place, a great monument rises. It was completed in 1948, was designed by Leon Suzin, and comprises of a small memorial plaque, and an 11-meter large wall. On the face of the monument are the persecuted Jews, and the insurgents comprised of the men and women. In 1970, the German Chancellor Willy Brandt performed the Warsaw Genuflection here. He lay down a wreath, and to the surprise of all, knelt in front of the monument. It is one of the most famous acts of penance related to the Holocaust. In fact, in 2000, the act earned Brandt his own monument in the Willy Brandt Square. Surrounding the monument, in the square, are 70 empty bronze chairs.

We went to this place on a city tour, it had a melancholy to it. And a heart warming story about a Polish pharmacist. Must see in Krakow.
Very nice and very touching. Great idea! Nice to visit and make pictures.
One of very intresting spots in Kraków very highlly recomending!!
Important place with sad WWII history. The chair-memorial is amazing, but the square is meanwhile surrounded by lots of ugly new architecture.
A great historical place, with the right tour guide you will have your mind blown
