The monument to the heroes who died during the Ghetto Uprising in 1943 was revealed on the fifth anniversary of the start of the uprising which erupted among the ruins of the destroyed city. The western side of the monument, titled 'The Fight', features men, women, and children armed with grenades and bottles of petrol. The figure holding the grenade represents Mordechaj Anielewicz. This side of the monument represents the will of those rising to do battle. The other side, titled 'March to Destruction', shows the suffering and martyrdom of women as well as innocent children and the elderly.
The monument features an inscription in Polish, Yiddish, as well as Hebrew which reads: 'The Jewish People in honour of its fighters and martyrs'.
