The former Zgody square today is called Bohaterów Getta, commemorating the events that took place on the square on the days of the liquidation of the Krakow Ghetto in 1943.
In 2005, a peculiar monument was installed on the square, in the form of empty chairs carved in metal, referring to furniture and baggage left on the square after the removal of the Jews from the ghetto. Each year, on the anniversary of the liquidation, the March of Remembrance sets off from the square, to repeat the last way of the Jews to the Płaszów Camp.
