We want to change the sorry state of the Jewish cemetery in Konstantynow Lodzki.

KONSTANTYNOW LODZKI JEWISH CEMETERY RESTORATION

Former Gestapo Building, now Town Library

Approximated Boundaries of the Cemetery

 At the present time the cemetery grounds exhibit no visible signs that people are buried there. The grounds are overgrown with trees, there is no fence, no monument and there are no gravestones. The Nazis removed the gravestones from the cemetery and made a walk - with the writing facing up - leading to the building they designated as Gestapo headquarters.

The grounds are now part of the town's recreational area. We would like to find the gravestones which were taken by the area residents after the war ended. 

We would like to have a plaque mounted which designates the grounds as a Jewish cemetery.  In addition, we would like to erect a monument to include recovered gravestones and fence in the grounds.
