Lodz Committee at the 2023 Lodz Commemoration.

In 1953 an initiating committee was formed with the aim of calling a general meeting of Melbourne Jews from the Polish city of Lodz and organising an evening to commemorate the memory of their annihilated community. 


Today’s Lodz Committee consists of second and third-generation descendants. As the years pass by and we have fewer survivors with us, we realise the importance of involving the younger generations in helping us remember the Lodzers who called Melbourne their home.
