21 E. Gibalskiego Street
The prewar Skra Sports Club playing field was in the ghetto. Initially it served as a place to grow vegetables for the starving inmates of the ghetto. In 1941 it became a mass grave for the corpses of Jews collected on the streets of the ghetto. After the ghetto was liquidated and during the Warsaw Uprising it was an execution ground. After the war, the remains of 6,588 Jews were transferred to the Warsaw Uprising Cemetery (174/176 Wolska St.).

In the gateway of one of these three buildings is a tablet with the inscription: "To Hipolit and Ludwika Wawelberg, the patrons of the Affordable Housing institution on the 25th anniversary of its founding, 1898-1923." The well-known Warsaw banker, Hipolit Wawelberg (1844-1901) was a spokesman for brotherly coexistence between Catholic and Jewish Poles. In 1895 he founded a mechanical-technical school and was one of the founders of the Museum of Industry and Trade.  He donated significant sums for the Mickiewicz Monument in Warsaw. 
He initiated an affordable edition of Adam Mickiewicz's works and those of other distinguished Polish writers.

On the wall of the little shops built in place of the Wolski Gardens is a bronze plaque reading: "In this place was a dugout in which the Wolski family, local gardeners, concealed from 1942-44 40 Jews, escapees from the Warsaw Ghetto. Among them was famous historian, Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum, a scholar of the history of the Polish Jews, and organizer of the secret ghetto archives. In March 1944, after betrayal of the dugout, the Nazis murdered all the Jews hidden in it and their caretakers."
A street in the Koło district between Deotymy and Czorsztyńska streets was named after Emanuel Ringelblum.

Jewish Theater
Corner of Grzybowska Street and Jana Pawła II Street
In this spot, opposite today's Mercure Hotel, was the Warsaw Jewish Community's headquarters. Built ca. 1892, it housed the Community office and the Jewish Museum. Training workshops were erected next door in 1901, where poor Jewish youth could learn a trade. During the war the building served as headquarters for the Judenrat. It was here on July 23, 1942 that chairman Adam Czerniaków committed suicide. Burned during the Warsaw Uprising, the building was torn down in the 1950s.
