The monument was founded by Jacek Eisner. Its form refers to the high wall of the ghetto with barbed wire, to which plates, arranged in the shape of a menorah, lead. Ruins of the ghetto were placed at the bottom of the monument, on the surface of which are photographs of Jewish children who died during World War II. There is a plaque underneath it written in three languages: Polish, Hebrew and English, with the following content: To the memory of one million Jewish children murdered by German barbarians 1939-1945. The photographs include a picture of a girl in checkered clothes and a hat depicting Lusia, the daughter of Chaskiel Bronstein, the owner of the Fotografika photography studio in Tarnów, mentioned by Paweł Huelle in a short story Mercedes Benz.
The monument also contains: a symbolic grave of the Szteinman family, murdered during the Holocaust, and two commemorative plaques:
- the first in Polish, Hebrew and English that reads: Grandmother Masha had twenty grandchildren. Grandmother Hana had eleven, only I survived. Jacek Eisner.
- the second one in Polish, Hebrew and English with the text of a poem by Henryka Łazowertówna Mały Szmugler
