expand icon Administrative/Biographical History
On February 8, 1940, the German occupiers of Poland created a ghetto for Jews in the large Polish city of Lodz. Eventually, about 200,000 Jews were confined there, and were used as slave labor and systematically starved.  The ghetto was liquidated in 1944. More than 145,000 Jews were deported from Lodz to Chełmno (16 January–12 September 1942, and 23 June–14 July 1944) and to Auschwitz-Birkenau (9–29 August 1944). About 12,000 Lodz ghetto residents survived Auschwitz and other camps and 877 survived in hiding.
