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

The Jewish cemetery in Lodz is just one example of the rich Jewish life that used to exist in Poland. It is very beautiful and interesting , in addition to its importance.

Well worth a visit - very moving. Old and not well kept but good for a wander. What is annoying is having to make this review of more than 50 characters!

they still renovating the cemetery. you can see loads of sad stories on the inside of the cemetery walls. most of the grave stones are covered with trees and bushes. once they clear all the area it will be good place to visit.

My group consisted of teachers from the US coming over to follow in the footsteps of local holocaust survivors, including a man whose father is buried in this cemetery. We had an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable and happened to come on a day when a local group was helping to clean up the cemetery. I can not stress... More

A little tricky to get to by public transport but worth the visit. Quite lovely and in desperate need of visitors to raise funding for ongoing maintenance
