I wouldn't recommend a trip to Lodz but if for some reason you decide to come here and you want to see something striking, this cemetery is a good place. It's the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe with more than 180,000 people buried here. In some ways, it shows perfectly well the before and after of World War II and... More

Worth a visit, if only to reflect on the fact that the occupants of the older graves cannot have had any notion of the horrors inflicted by the Nazis on their descendants. The memorial plaques on the cemetery wall say it all.

The entrance to the cemetery is on a narrow road on the east side. There are about 180K graves and there is a section from the Lodz ghetto era. There are some rather extravagant mausoleums that are be studied.

Not quite sure what to expect from walking around a graveyard but it is very interesting. Literally spent 2 hours walking around it without knowing. There is a story behind every grave.

Soo huge! Incredible to think that the whole jewish population of Lodz dissapeared, but seeing this cemetery you understand how big and rich the jewish community was. Some tombstones are mausoleum! We made a tour with a guide and it was worthwhile.

Fascinating! Don't miss Poznanski"s mausoleum (you really can't!) - outrageously showy, ostentatious and over-the-top. Opposite the empty pits by the wall (dug by the wall by Jewish victims during the Holocaust - they escaped their fate during an air-raid and at least one of them is alive in Lodz today and preserves the site) is the common grave of several...

The cemetery is absolutely worth it to see it. I was in the winter time there and it was shocking to see the tumbs cover by snow, and deep in the woods. Watchout it is very hard to find the enterance. But on the south side the wall is demolished so you can go to the cementery from there.
