Auschwitz Birkenau - liquidation of the Litzmannstadt ghetto
On August 29, 1944, the Łódź Ghetto was completely liquidated. On that day, the last transport to the Auschwitz Birkenau extermination camp departed from the ghetto. In the period from August 9 to 29, the last 70,000 Jews living in the Łódź Ghetto (Litzmannstadt Ghetto) were deported to Auschwitz Birkenau. Upon their arrival, the Germans sent most of them to the gas chambers.
