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.

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.

It was suitably raining the day I visited the Jewish cemetery. It is overgrown and struggles not to look unkempt. The burial pits dug by the last Jews of the ghetto, never used because of their final liberation, was very moving. Recommended reading: 'Front of the Wilderness Generation', which covers this whole traumatic period.

It's a must go, the atmosphere of this place makes you feel like you've been already there. However it needs to be renovated.
