The article discusses memory of the Jewish and the Holocaust past of Warsaw as it has been practiced in two districts of the city of Warsaw comprising the territory of the World War II ghetto. To contextualize the case studies described in the text, a discussion of the politics of the Polish memory of World War II in the context of the city of Warsaw has been provided, together with a brief discussion of research methods, which made use of the author’s familiarity with the place as an inhabitant, a tourist guide and a visitor. The article describes the spatial context of commemorations, and presents interpretations for their perception and reception both by the inhabitants and the visitors.
