USHMM – Poland, Łódź Ghetto Register Books, 1939 – 1944 (Part 6)


The records in this project are from various documents from the group Przelozony Starszenstwa Zydów w Getcie Lódzkim 1939-1944 and predominantly consists of records of the Eldest of the Jews in the Lódz Ghetto, Chaim Mordechai Rumkowski, and of his administration.  The records are mainly in German and Polish.  This project is part of the World Memory Project.

The goal of this collection is to capture the information about the people for whom the document is about and not the people who administered the document. The fields you will capture are labeled well and on most images, printed clearly. These records have a lot of information but not every image has the fields you will capture.

You can find a variety of articles and media clips about the Łódź Ghetto here.   If you have questions about this project please post them on the Discussion page or the USHMM message board.
