One of the most fascinating places, moving between the old tombs you go back in time and feel part of Jewish history, and especially the tragedy that befell the Jewish people during World War II .

impressive and sad, one of the biggest jewish cementary in Europe, not very good managed, reconstruction needed, but impression is very intensive anyhow. Not so easy to find entrance (main gate is closed, entrance is from side street by small doors.

This enormous cemetery is over 450 years old. It contains 230,000 graves, same as the number of Jews that lived in Lodz prior to WW2, most of whom were killed by the Nazis but were not burted here.

A small door in the cemetery wall is the entrance point to an experience like nothing else. This almost 40 HA big area has been a cemetery for the large jewish population of. Lodz for hundreds of years. Pre war almost 200000 jews lived in the city but only some 800 survived the war. 40000 is buried here. Nobody was... More

The Lodz "New" cemetery is supposedly the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. Started in the 1880s it was partially destroyed by the nazis. Left to be over-run by nature, it is now a slightly uncomfortable but beautiful place to wander around. There is a small museum and some graves and mausoleums which family survivors have come back to restore since... More

This cemetery sits across the road from the large catholic cemetery which is well kept with loads of flower sellers, pristine markers and lots of attendees. The Jewish cemetery sits in stark contrast. Neglected, overgrown with vines tearing apart the graves, and incredibly moving plaques celebrating the lives of families who were brutally murdered in the Lodz ghetto and afterwards.... More

If you lave this place untouched you're in need of treatment. Only 900 of 320.000 jews servived, many graves are totally neglected since WW2 since so many whole families were killed and nobody to visit the graves. Will keep the feeling of visiting this cemetery to my final day.

If you are interested in learning more about Polish Jewry, particularly during the Nazi era, stop and visit the cemetery. There is an old chapel, and the cemetery has once-beautiful stones that were desecrated during the war. There is a 'ghetto site' where the mass graveyard stands. Powerful.
