The side track in Marysin, now known as the Radegast station - the name it received during the occupation - was established in 1937, but only started to fulfill its role in April 1940. Initially, food and fuel for the ghetto was brought to Radegast, as well as raw materials for clothing, shoes and uniforms for the German army; finished goods were also shipped from there. Starting in 1941, transports of Jews from Western Europe were brought to Radegast, including those coming from Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Luxembourg, as well as Gypsies from Burgenland and Jews from liquidated ghettos in cities and towns of the Warthegau. Since January 1942, transports of Jews to extermination camps departed from the Radegast station - first north to Chełmno, then south - to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
In 2005, a monument of the Victims of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto was erected here, designed by Czesław Bielecki, consisting of a broken column visible from afar, with an inscription proclaiming in Polish, English and Hebrew: "Thou shalt not kill." The interior of the monument can be entered through a tunnel ending in the so-called “hall of cities”, with names of the places from which Jews came to the Łódź ghetto. In the tunnel, copies of transport lists are exhibited along with display cases with objects found in Chełmno on the Ner. Next to the station building (which now houses a branch of the Museum of Independence Traditions) freight wagons are placed, in which people were transported to their death. Behind the building, there are concrete matzevahs with names of concentration camps to which the Jews of the Łódź ghetto were sent, including: Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg, Stutthof, Gross-Rosen and Ravensbrück. Plaques on the wall remind us that the monument was erected using the funds of the city, state and sponsors during the term of the Mayor of Łódź, Jerzy Kropiwnicki. Josef Buchman, a businessman from Frankfurt also donated a significant sum of money for this purpose (his parents died in the Litzmannstadt ghetto). The city of Vienna also contributed to the monument.
