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 is essential to visit the Jewish cemetery in order to understand how hard was the second world war with Jews people.

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.

The Cemetery is huge. And very interesting! But you need a guide or you have to read hebrew. Without the guide there is no sense to go there

Poignant. powerful, tragic, sad, devastating, peaceful and beautiful all at the same time. A cemetery where vines and or moss have covered nearly everything and made it into a green forest with headstones. Because of a lack of maintenance, a lot of paths are impassable, however, it is well worth a visit to this very old cemetery.

As part of an invited stay in Lodz, this trip to the Jewish Museum was arranged. My husband and I actually were offered alternatives, as well, but this was something I was interested in seeing. Little did I realize the impact it would have. My husband and I had been to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where, of course, we were effected profoundly, but... More
