The Cmentarz żydowski w Łodzi - Jewish cemetery in Lodz, is a place of profound emotional impact. The site has largely returned to forest, where huge trees draped with vines overshadow thousands of memorial stones, statues, and crumbling fences. Some of the memorials have been restored, but thousands have fallen over. Surprisingly, the site survived World War II largely intact.... More

Astonishingly large site. Here you can find the last resting place of everyone from paupers to millionaire industrialists. It is quiet here and solemn, a place for stillness and reflection. Much work has been done to clear and preserve the site but there is years of work to do. Near one of the walls there are deep pits that were... More

This was an intense visit. As stated in other reviews, the Jewish Cemetery in Lodz is an incredibly impressive and sad place. You get a more complete understanding of the Jewish community pre WWII and when the history changes with the Nazis. It’s very visual there. Everyone should visit. We were surprised that so much of it still existed. There... More

Certainly worth a visit. The air is still and there is somewhat haunting feel given the history of this cemetery.

The Jewish Cemetery in Lodz is an incredibly impressive but also very sad site. In order to understand the history of Lodz and the role of the Jewish community in it, before it was eradicated by the Nazis, one should visit. It is not that easy to reach, but a taxi can take you there cheaply in a few minutes... More

I was quite impressed with my first visit to this place, in the company of an outstanding tour guide who offered amazing and personalized stories about the place and the people who are interred here. There is an intact funeral hall from the early 1900's- that in and of itself is worth a visit to see how the Jewish deceased... More
