The monument by Bogumił Zagajewski and Janusz Tarabuła was erected in 1963 on the 20th anniversary of the liquidation of the ghetto in Lublin.
On the monument there is a quote from the "Song of the Murdered Jewish People" by Icchak Kacenelson: " I am searching for my dead, In every hill of ash". At the base of the monument there are carved names of the towns of the Lublin Region, where the Germans murdered Jews from the Lublin ghetto.
The Monument to the Victims of the Ghetto was moved to the junction of Niecała and Radziwiłłowska Streets. Originally, it stood on the Square of Victims to the Lublin Ghetto, between Lubartowska and Świętoduska streets.
