Full description
Your guide will greet you at the hotel and invite you for the fully private sightseeing. Before the outbreak of World War II Lodz was inhabited by over 200,000 Jews. They constituted as many as one third of the total population in this multinational city. Get to know the history of Jews of Lodz – once one of the biggest Jewish society in Poland. Stop by the Radegast station, the final point of trains transporting Jews from western European countries and provincial ghettos from Wartheland. See the Jewish cemetery, the largest Jewish necropolis in Poland. Pass the Children’s Martyrdom Monument, also called the monument of the Broken Heart, dedicated to Polish children who died or were murdered while being imprisoned in the camp in Przemysłowa Street. Take a rest in the Survivors’ Park commemorating the liquidation of the ghetto and stop under one of over 600 “memory trees” planted by those who survived the Litzmannstadt Ghetto. Visit the only remaining pre-war synagogue – Reicher synagogue which survived the times of occupation as a salt warehouse. Discover the renovated industrial complex of the Manufaktura, belonged to a Jewish businessman Israel Poznanski with an open-air plaza surrounded by large brick buildings and the longest stretch of fountains in Europe. At the end take a walk along Piotrkowska Street, a popular avenue full of shops, pubs, restaurants, and sculptures that commemorate famous inhabitants of Lodz and learn from your guide what else you can discover on your own after this tour.
