One of the stones that mark the way between the Memorial to Heroes of Warsaw Ghetto and the Umschlagplatz Memorial.
Umschlagplatz Memorial (Pomnik Umschlagplatz) was designed by Hanna Szmalenberg and Władysław Klamerus and was opened in 1988. It is designed to resemble an open freight car as this was the location where Jews were gathered for deportation to the Treblinka extermination camp.
