“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
Today traces of the former Litzmannstadt Ghetto are still present in the city of Łódź, but not all inhabitants are aware of the history of the ghetto. In 2015, the Museum of Independence Traditions in Łódź undertook a project called "Litzmannstadt-Getto Model" to create a 3D representation of the area where the ghetto stood. The project is co-funded by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance as part of its grant programme.
The aim of the project is to present information about the history of the Jews within the context of the multicultural and multinational heritage of Łódź. The project draws on documents and photos to create the model of the ghetto.
The presentation of the first stage of the model took place in May 2016. On 27 March 2017 the Museum will present the second stage of the model in an event which is open to the public. More information (in Polish) can be found on the event Facebook page.
