Raised rim. On the obverse, a double-line border, broken into sections, with stars in between each part. In the centre, towards the top, is a filled-in Star of David. On the reverse, a banner is going through the centre number (see inscription). Narrative: The Lodz Ghetto (Ghetto Litzmannstadt in German) was the second-largest ghetto (after the Warsaw Ghetto) in German-occupied Poland. Situated in the town of Lodz it was originally intended as a temporary gathering point for Jews. It was a major industrial centre, providing much needed supplies for Nazi Germany and especially for the German Army. Because of this productivity, the ghetto managed to survive until August 1944, when the remaining population was transported to Auschwitz. It was the last ghetto in Poland to be liquidated.
