A must for people interested in WW2
Jul 2019 • Solo
As someone interested in WW2 I have been to many places connected with that time period, but nothing really impressed me as much as this area. Do a little research on the net before visiting the area and you will find a lot of places to visit and feel like you are getting closer to history.

Do your research first and plan your route
Nov 2018 • Couples
Using the map of the ghetto (from the tourist information office) and the book "Traces of the Litzmannstadt ghetto" determine whats important to you as the area is huge if on foot. We tram 6 to Radegast station and walked back from there via the Jewish cemetery, the young person's camp into the park with its broken heart monument. The ghetto boundaries are in white markers here (see pix).

Onto the hospital / aged persons buildings to gypsy camp to various buildings, sites of the three bridges over the tramway, the church, the OD offices, Rynek, Gestapo HQ, Rybna Street (with its various buildings) and execution field.

There are pavement markers as to the ghetto boundaries. That little lot took us best part of the day on foot.

Got a map from the tourist office and spent all day walking around the area.
The maps highlights specific buildings and significant areas telling you the history of these places.
Some of the areas I walked around are very run down and at times felt a little uncomfortable.
However a must do as it gives you a understanding of the area of the ghetto

Sad History - Deserves Better Recognition
Aug 2016 • Couples
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 lost wandering about on our own. Next time we are in Lodz we will try to join an organised walking tour, so we can understand more.

Important part of Lodz history
Jul 2016
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 strongly that one have a guide for this visit.

Depressing place; depressing history
May 2016 • Friends
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.

Part of the Ghetto Walking tour
May 2016 • Friends
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

Start at Radegast Station
Aug 2015 • Couples
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 photos to see and information to read. The information is in several languages including English.

If you Google "map of Litzmannstadt Ghetto" you will be able to find maps that list the actual streets that were located in the former ghetto. I used a book called "The Holocaust Sites of Europe" by Martin Winstone which gives lots of history along with maps. His book pointed out some of the more important buildings, some of which have been re-modeled while others you just know were there during that dark history. There are outlines on the street which mark the ghetto boundaries. I think the boundary markings in Lodz are better than the markings for the former Warsaw Ghetto. Just walk around and take it all in and then imagine what it must have been like for the Jews at that time.

I didn't make it to the Survivor Park.

It's a sad part of history
Aug 2015 • Business
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
