Pictured here are Jews being deported from Lodz to Auschwitz in August 1944. From January to May, 1942, 55,000 Jews from Lodz were sent to their deaths in the Chelmno death camp. From September 1942 until May 1944 there were no more deportations. After May, the deportations to Chelmno were renewed and by July about 7,000 Jews had been deported. In early August, the Nazis rerouted the deportations to Auschwitz in order to accelerate the extermination process. By August 30th, over 70,000 Jews had been deported to Auschwitz. Only 1,200 Jews remained In Lodz: 600 were sent to labor camps in Germany, while the other 600 were put in a camp inside Lodz (Radogoszcz prison). The Nazis intended to kill all the prisoners in that camp before they withdrew, but the prisoners managed to escape to the ghetto area, where they were liberated by the Soviet army on January 19, 1945.
