The Jewish Cementary in Lodz is not only the biggest active jewish cementary in Europe but also one of the most intersting as a historical monument. One can find there not only the simple modest macevas from the XX and XXI century, but also magnificent chapels-monuments of the richest families of the industrial tycoons of XIX and beginnings of XIX...

An interesting site if you are interested in Jewish history and the holocaust. The place needs better maintenance.

Second Jewish Community in Poland before the Second World War, huge cemetery with unique sites like the purification building -"Beith Toharah". Huge mausoleum of Israel Posnanski and his family, a good example of the so called "Manchester of Poland".

Unfortunately, we went on the spur of the moment, and our navigation brought us to the front gates, which are locked. The map on the board is only in Polish. There is a small sign, once you walk 100 meters up to the gates, that the entrance is on the side, but no directions on how to get there. You... More

We set to walk to the cemetery from the Grand Hotel on Piotrkowska Street. Don't ever attempt to do that - it's way too far. After about an hour and a half of walking in scorching heat we arrived at the cemetery but could not locate the entrance. After additional 20 to 30 min. of searching (it occurred to me... More

We decided to walk to the cemetery from our hotel in the Manufaktura mall area . Mistakenly, we thought it would only be a couple of miles, but ended at least double that amount in distance each way. In addition to the temperature in the mid 90's, and unable to read/speak Polish, it was a bit of a challenge. It... More

A very moving experience visiting one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Poland. Lodz was the 2nd largest ghetto in Poland and the last to be "liquidated". The ghetto field tells it's own story and some of the memorial plaques from families remembering lost relatives are very poignant. Tram number 6 opposite Manufactura (20 minutes) and a short walk (10... More

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.
