This architecture-and-garden composition dominates the nearby Survivors' Park. The monument is made of walls made of prefabricated concrete elements along the Star of David plan. The walls bear the inscription: "Righteous Among the Nations." On the walls of the Star the plaques bearings names of the Poles decorated by the Yad Vashem with the Righteous Among the Nations medal will be placed by the survivors.

The sculpture of an Eagle is placed on a triangular plinth. The monument executed in travertine cuts into an amphitheatric staircase, which, along its length of c. 80 m., constitutes the bank of the Łódka river decorative and retentive reservoir. The inscription placed on the plinth reads: "To the Poles who saved Jews during the years 1939-1945," and includes quotations from the Gospel and the Talmud in Polish, Hebrew, and English.

In 2010, the Association of Polish Urban Planners (TUP) granted this project an award in the category of the best Public Space Created Through the Nature.
