  • The Lodz ghetto was the second largest after the Warsaw ghetto. Located north of the city, in the Baluty, stretched in a rather wide where in 1940 there were 164,000 people initially detained. Basically a city within a city, the ghetto was organized in some areas connected by wooden bridges whose transit was only permitted to the Jews. The ghetto lived many dramatic events during its existence, including a camp set up for children and adolescents and one created specifically for the Roma and Sinti. Today there is little left, unless some buildings marked with plaques often difficult to detect, and some monuments such as to remember the dead children in the ghetto. Unfortunately there are no guided tours, so the only possibility is to bring the great guide available free at tourist information offices. Inside the booklet is the QR code through which to display your route on Google Maps. We suggest you begin your visit to rynek Balucki (the market square) and from there follow the suggested route. Count on half a day to do all the way (it is a few kilometers) not to mention absolutely to visit the small museum and Memorial in the Radegast Station (from which the trains to the death camps) and the Jewish cemetery (which hosts the campo del ghetto, with almost 50,000 graves of people who died in the ghetto during its existence).

  • It is one of the most important places on the map of the boat. There was the tragedy of mankind. Walk with guide Monika is understanding the tragedy of these people. Was a little, but with great knowledge you can imagine all the enormity of these tragic days. Sad, but mandatory.

  • A lot of history about the Holocaust, in fact Łódź is a place full of stories. It was a cold and gray day, trains for transportation of prisoners of war, paintings and pictures and objects from the time.
