Child Martyrs Monument

  Park im. Szarych Szeregów     more than a year ago

The Łódź Ghetto was also home to a separate camp for Polish children, and this was located on ul. Przemysłowa. Today only a former admin building remains at number 34, though a large memorial can also be spotted if you carry on walking straight into Park Szarych Szeregów. Depicting an emaciated figure staring through a cracked white heart, the monument is dedicated to the 1,600 children who were processed through the camp once found on these grounds. Beatings and hard labour were standard here, and it is estimated that over 130 children died while in custody, many due to starvation.
