Radegast Station

The history of the Radegast Station reaches as far back as the interwar period. That’s when a passing loop was constructed, which during the World War II was transformed into a station used to deliver food and industrial materials to the ghetto. The station’s building standing to this day was built in 1941. In the same year the station became the final point of trains transporting Jews from western European countries and provincial ghettos from Wartheland. Shortly after, the occupants organized Umschlagplatz – a place of gathering for Jews before they were taken to extermination camps. It is estimated that approximately 145 thousand people, mainly Jewish, have passed through the Radegast Station.

Currently the Station is under the care of the Museum of Independence Traditions. The restored station’s building, together with the Tunnel of Memory and a monument commemorating the Jewish people who were taken away through the station, was opened during the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the liquidation of the Litzmannstadt Ghetto.
