Hard Work And Human Suffering - The Dark Story Of The Old Train Station
There is a lot of exciting things in urban exploration. You can discover what has been undiscovered so far and you can feel the story of this place. The train graveyard seemed to be new in comparison to Red Star Train Graveyard or Train Graveyard in Kraków. There were no old steam locomotives, but only modern but rusty trains. Everything looked pretty nice and we didn’t know about the terrible story of this place. The train graveyard was a part of the rail network with a station, which was built by Germans during WWII. Ok, not really by Germans. The station with all the stuff was created by Jews at the behest of the Germans. So that was the former labour camp.
Train Graveyard In The Labour Camp - What Actually Happened There?
As we mentioned before – the story of this place is terrible. All the stuff was built by Jews from the nearby ghetto. Construction works of the station were carried out in inhumane conditions. There was huge mortality here, and the victims were buried in railway embankments. At the cost of human blood and suffering, the station was opened in 1941. It was one of the biggest railway stations in Europe. The construction consisted of the railway network, water tower, administrative buildings, warehouses, and the train stop (which was closed in 1960). The end of construction, unfortunately, did not mean the end of the dramatic events. Actually, that was only the beginning of the problems.
Soviet Attack On Poland - The Dramatic Attack Started An The Station
During WWII Poland was being attacked not only by Germans but also by Soviets. Unfortunately, they did not miss the city of Łódź. They arrived by train at our station and they raided the surrounding villages. The Soviets did not spare anyone and they robbed people who were hiding in the forests. They were so cruel. Drunken soldiers organized regular manhunts of women. They were able to attack the whole village and chase away the inhabitants. That was so scary. They were supposed to be liberators of Poland, but they turned out to be cruel enemies. They attacked all of Poland, but we’ll never forget the robbery in the country centre, which started on this station.
