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

Most of the cemetery is falling apart but it interesting to see the old right next to the new and learn about the history of the cemetery. Don't miss the mausoleums if you go, especially Poznaski's

As a jewish young woman I felt very emotional when I saw te grave of four youths from the Bnei Akivah youth movement who were assassinated in an antisemitic attack. Also I was marveled at the size of some graves and at the amount of people who died in the Lodz ghetto, and still got a proper jewish burial there... More

The entrance is a bit difficult to locate when you are on your own. Few signs would help. The place is amazing and you will not regret walking across hundreds of sometimes over hundred years old amazingly beautiful macewas. Wish there was more renovation happening...

Good place to do a walk :) I live nearby and every first Sunday of the month I go there (it is free then). Abandoned graves among the trees, among them renewed ones, sometimes a guide telling you exactly what it is about. Every season has its values.

Well you can, because it is such an evocative experience. Lodz had some of the richest Jews in Poland who owned massive factories and palaces. They have their mausoleums in this cemetery amongst the thousands of others far less fortunate than them. The textile barons did their best to outclass each other in the size and beauty of their graves.... More

The place everybody should visit. Amazing place. From my point the best time to visit is end of September, beginning of October when in Poland start "polish Autumn", when the leaves on the trees start to change color to yellow and red.

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...
