Members of the Gordonia youth movement working the soil in Marysin, Lodz Ghetto, 1941.

Marysin was an agricultural area within the Lodz Ghetto. For almost a year (May 1940-March 1941), youth movements operated training kibbutzim in Marysin. Each movement received a portion of land, similar to the training kibbutzim of the pioneering youth movements before the war.
