The Lodz Ghetto: An in-depth study

What was life like for those trapped inside the Lodz ghetto? When the Germans sealed off the ghetto on May 1, 1940, 164,000 Jews were imprisoned in Lodz, the second largest of over 1,000 ghettos in Europe. Using photography and testimony, Yad Vashem educator Liz Elsby will provide insight into the four long years the ghetto existed, and its many unique characteristics. This webinar connects with Lesson Plan Unit 4 on the Echoes & Reflections website.

Liz Elsby has worked at Yad Vashem since 2006 as a Holocaust Educator and museum tour guide. She guides educational groups in Poland, Prague, Terezin and Berlin, as well as teaching about the Holocaust to teachers in the USA through Yad Vashem and Echoes and Reflections. Liz is also an artist, illustrator and graphic designer and lives with her family in Jerusalem, Israel.
