Lodz, Poland
1996

Second most important city of Poland, Lodz had for a long time owed its importance to the industrial economy development, textile among other. But, under the tricks of the Second World War, the city was practically totally destroyed, and the Jewish population was sent to concentration camps. Since that time, Lodz has never found again its past greatness. In the five next years, the city will lost its status of second town of Poland for Krakow. This is the story Stéphane Duroy is telling us. In the streets, empty of inhabitants, we feel that a nostalgic touch is here. Nostalgic for a city, and for a history which is loosing itself.
