1. From Warsaw: Lodz & Litzmannstadt Jewish Ghetto Private Tour
Discover the cultural relevance and unique architecture of Lodz, Poland’s third-largest city, on a private tour that commemorates the tragic history of the Jewish Ghetto enacted during World War II. Depart Warsaw on a 1.5-hour drive to Lodz, which was the once center of the polish industry and was referred to as the Promised Land or the Polish Manchester. Learn about its grim history during World War II, where, under Nazi control, it was annexed and its name changed to Litzmannstadt. Walk around the Jewish Ghetto, where over 200.000 Polish Jews were retained, and unfortunately only a few survived. See how this historic district has survived and now serves a memorial, commemorating the tragic events of the Holocaust. Explore the maze of factories and workshops that contrast with the splendid pre-war buildings with richly decorated facades found in the picturesque city center.
