80. anniversary of the liquidation of Litzmannstadt-Getto

In 2024, two significant anniversaries will be observed. In August, we will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the liquidation of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto, with the main ceremonies taking place on August 29 at the Jewish cemetery and the Radegast Station. The accompanying events are scheduled from August 21 to 31. The entire program is being developed in cooperation with numerous partners. The program will include meetings with survivors, families of survivors, tours of the former ghetto area, documentary film screenings, exhibitions, and concerts. Some of the events will take place in the Survivors' Park, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary. The park is unique for many reasons. It was initiated by Halina Elczewska, a survivor of the Łódź Ghetto, and was meant to symbolize life and hope. The park has changed since its establishment, with over 660 memory trees planted, but it is also a place for meetings, artistic and cultural activities. August 28 marks the Survivors' Day. On this day, more families will receive the Memory Tree certificates, and in the afternoon and evening, the park will be filled with music. At 8.30 PM, there will be an open-air concert dedicated to the survivors.
