If you are visiting Lodz, don't miss this. It is a sad but important piece of history that should not be forgotten. The place is the easiest to reach by car but we managed to find there by tram with the help of google maps. This is an open museum outside so you can visit anytime with no entrance free.

This is an important historical place that has been transformed into an impressive historical museum. It is well worth the visit. Despite being the third largest city in Poland, Lodz is not on most tourist itineraries- it was and is an industrial city. However, here, in a corner of the city, is an amazing memorial and monument to the deportation... More

Many visitors to Poland don't make it to Lodz, but it is worth it just to visit the haunting Radegast Station Holocaust Memorial alone. The actual station from where the Jews of the Lodz ghetto were sent to the Nazi extermination camps, the layout and content is unforgettable. An intense experience for the visitor to become immersed in layers of... More

This memorial is at the actual train station from which Jewish victims of the Lodz ghetto were sent to various Nazi extermination camps. The station, the train cars, the memorial are all important reminders of the sad history of the Lodz ghetto

A memorial to the Holocaust, rebuilt in 2004, that is authentic, chilling and unforgettable in its presentation and layout.

Radegast station retains its original shape, erected in 1941 playing a vital role in the deportation of Jews from the Lodz Ghetto to the Nazi concentration camps. The building and train carriages are part of the extermination memorial. The building is now used to host exhibitions which recount the history of the Jewish community in Lodz and the ghetto. You...

A visit to this station after driving through the former Litzmanstadt gettho area on a gloomy, wet February day was an eyeopener. The museum in the station building is small but tells the cruel history of the shipment to the death camps in a direct way

Unlike many others, I did not find too much interesting sightseeing in Lodz - the city itself was rather a wake-up-call so to say (you'll know what I mean when you drive around there). So the Railway station made me a rather strong impression. I was there in the middle of winter silence completely alone and dear god it was... More
