Every time I say that if you want to see your future you have to know your past. And these places are very important to see. To avoid mistakes from past

Confusing to know where to go and what to look at. No obvious street signage or information boards. Virtually everything was destroyed in the war so you can only get a hint of what might have been. There's a useful shop with guide books, postcards etc located in the colonnaded area around the old market place. We felt a bit... More

The Ghetto of Lodz and the horrible fate of the Jewish inhabitants who were condemned to live, work and die there, are important aspects of the history of the city. One can locate a map which lists many of the buildings that were inside the Ghetto, but the exact boundaries of the ghetto are not easily recognizable today. I recommend... More

This is the area where the Nazis confined the Jews of the city of Lodz and its surrounding area. The visit is depressing. The area is poor and not attractive. One visits the authentic buildings streets and alleyways. There are no historical signs nor markers- this must be done with a guide or someone who knows the area.

A sad part of the history of Lodz was the Jewish Ghetto district. Litszmannstadt ran right thru it. Walking it yourself you wouldn't notice but any walking tour will point it out and explain the significance

A good place to start would be Radegast Station which is actually on the outskirts of the former ghetto. When the ghetto was liquidated, it was from Radegast Station that they were then transported to their death. The station house has been turned into a museum which tells the history of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto. There are lots of lots of... More

We visited the former Ghetto with a guide which was very informative Lodz had a large Jewish population before the war who were used a slave labor to make uniforms etched for the Germans Now nothing is left with the exception of a memorial and names listed on pavers

This park can be found across the road from the Glowackiego tram stop. I suspect that a lot of people visiting the former Nazi Litzmannstadt (its what the Nazi's renamed Lodz after) ghetto dont get to visit this park. Personally I think its worth the effort. The name translates as Survivors Park and as well as commemorating those who survived... More
