The Association of Lodz Jews in Israel is a non-profit organization that had been registered in Israel at 24 June 1996, and whose Registration Number is 58-028545-0.
In reality, the Organization began operating shortly after the end of WWII.
There are many active members in the Organization, survivors and second and third generation children of Holocaust survivors, whose activity in and dedication to the Organization ensures that the Jewish community of Lodz shall never be forgotten, and its legacy will be passed-on to future generations. This Website is part of the commemoration efforts.
The activity of the Organization is carried out entirely by volunteers and is funded by membership fees and donations. The Association is not supported by any formal body or institution.
In the Gallery you will find numerous photos, mostly from the Ghetto and from the commemoration activities today.

First, Second and Third Generations
We are now in a historical turning-point, in terms of molding the memory and commemoration of the communities in general and the Lodz community in particular. A time where the responsibility for the commemoration and bequeathal of the story is being more and more transmitted to the second and third generations. The responsibility and the manner in which these generations will act will ultimately mold and determine the nature and intensity of the Community's memory.
The Association of Lodz Jews in Israel beckons all members of the Community and their second and third generation descendants to take an active part in the work.
The Website now enables electronic registration and we are currently preparing a database that includes an email address and a more fluent capacity to contact members of Lodz community.
Furthermore, the Organization is in desperate need of monetary support. Activities that are taking place both in Israel and in Poland, the website, the annual convention of the Community's descendants and the recent educational project that recruits school pupils to accompany the family's of Lodz descendants in their story – all these require financial resources. We ask of anyone who can help to do so.
Searching for names – we want to prepare the most comprehensive list possible of Lodz descendants over the generations. Please register in the Website and summon your friends to do so too. This is the time for realizing our right to establish these lists.
