are hereby extending their invitation to join them in Łódź on 29 August 2024
for the main commemoratins
the 80th anniversary of the liquidation of the Litzmannstadt Getto

You are invited to the 80th Anniversary of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto Liquidation.

The 29th of August is a symbolic date – in August 1944, the last people living in the closed district were deported from the Łódź Ghetto to Auschwitz-Birkenau by the German occupiers. Later, the ghetto was liquidated.

Łódź, which before the war was a crucial centre of Jewish culture, science and trade, still commemorates its inhabitants as well as thousands of Jews from nearby towns and many cities in Europe who lost their lives in the city or were transported from Łódź to the death camps.
