The exhibition “Post41” documents testimony from Litzmannstadt Ghetto. Postcards and diaries, extracts from the ghetto chronicle, and photos and film extracts form set pieces in the reconstruction of a story that basically cannot be told. Seventy years after the clearing of the ghetto, institutions in Vienna and Łódź are devoting an exhibition and remembrance book to the 5,000 Jews deported in 1941 from Aspangbahnhof in Vienna to Łódź. Many of the deportees died in the first few months of hunger and disease, and most of the rest were murdered in Kulmhof and Auschwitz. Only a few survived.
