Re: How to obtain Lodz cemetery photo #lodz

Hello,

For those searching Lodz, there is also an excellent book that covers many names, dates and tombstone inscriptions from the earlier Lodz cemetery. Read about the early cemetery here: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stary_cmentarz_%C5%BCydowski_w_%C5%81odzi (if you open in Chrome, right click on the page to translate the WIKI to English).

To see the actual book, all 256 pages, you can go to
http://bc.wimbp.lodz.pl/Content/75562/Stary_Cmentarz_Zydowski_w_Lodzi_1938a.pdf

If you find a page of interest, you can type the Polish or Hebrew into
translate.google.com
to understand the text.

For instance, I wanted to  understand the 5-line entry on page numbered 212, #673 (image 16 of 256). I typed it all into Google Translate
 
#673. zamozny kupiec przedzy bawelniane przybyl do lodz
prawdopodobnie okolo 1850 r. z Czestochowy. W Lodz nalezal
Sand do grup maskilow, skupiajacych sie dookola zalozonego
przez Zajdemana domu modlilwy dla postepowcow. Z.
Zajdemanem (v. nr. 116) byl Zand skoligacony przez syna swego
Moryca, Z. (v. nr. 2195 i 853).

and Google translated

# 673. a wealthy merchant of cotton yarn came to Łódź probably
around 1850 from Czestochowa. In Lodz, Sand belonged to a group
of maskils, gathered around the house founded by Zajdeman,
praying for the progressives. Z. Zajdeman (v. No. 116) was Zand
connected by his son Moryc, Z. (v. No. 2195 and 853).

Stay safe,
