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 a song by Icchak Kacenelson about the murdered Jewish people: "In each handful of ash I am looking for my loved ones." At the base of the monument, the names of the towns of the Lublin Region, where the Germans murdered Jews from the Lublin ghetto, were carved.

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.
