Cutting diagonally across the image is today’s course of Ludwika Zamenhofa Street. Beyond the fence, the reverse of the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes (unveiled in 1948, sculptor Nathan Rapaport, architect Leon Suzin) and a fragment of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in construction (inauguration 2013, architects Ilmari Lahdelma and Rainer Mahlamäki). Parallel to Zamenhofa Street runs Józefa Lewartowskiego Street. In the clearance between the white-and-green residential high-rise and the low horizontal block at Lewartowskiego Street, beyond the trees, the so called ‘Anielewicz Mound’. On the horizon, the Babka Tower high-rise near the northern end of the former Ghetto, and the dome of Saint Carolus Borromeus’ Roman Catholic Church at Old Powązki by the Ghetto’s western border.
