Lodz: A Topography of Life and Death in the Ghetto 70 Years After Its Liquidation - E-Newsletter - Education & E-Learning - Yad Vashem

Lodz: A Topography of Life and Death in the Ghetto 70 Years After Its Liquidation - E-Newsletter - Education & E-Learning - Yad Vashem | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

 

Shalom and welcome to the 32nd issue of Teaching the Legacy.
This year marks 70 years since the liquidation of the Lodz ghetto. As such, we have dedicated this newsletter to life and death in that ghetto, 70 years after its liquidation. The Lodz ghetto was unique because it was one of the first ghettos to be established and it was created to be temporary, yet it existed longer than any other ghetto in Europe. It was the very last ghetto to be liquidated, in the summer of 1944.
