Survivors' Park

The Survivors’ Park, located in Wojska Polskaiego Street, is a park with exceptional history. It was created in 2004, during the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the liquidation of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto through the initiative of Halina Elczewska, a woman who survived the war. The park consists of around 600 trees commemorating the people who survived the Holocaust. Every tree is assigned to a particular survivor and along the main alley of the park we can also find plates with their names. Additionally, the park also has an 8-meter tall Memorial Mound with a bench – a statue of Jan Karski, Marek Edelman Center for Dialogue, and the Monument of Poles Saving Jews. This monument, erected at the pond, has a shape of tall walls forming the David Star and an eagle springing to flight. On the walls there are names of people who have been honored with the title of the Righteous among the Nations.
