1942 color street map of Litzmannstadt (Łódź), Poland

Object | Accession Number: 2006.326.1

1942 map of Litzmannstadt (Łódź), Poland with an alphabetical street directory. The city had been occupied and annexed by Nazi Germany one week after the September 1, 1939, invasion. The Germans renamed the city Litzmannstadt, after the General Karl Litzmann, who had conquered the city during World War I. Łódź had the second largest Jewish population in Poland and, in February 1940, they were relocated to a small, closed ghetto. By September 1942, 70,000 Jews, neary half the population, had been deported to the Chelmno killing center. The ghetto was emptied by mass deportations and destroyed in August 1944.
