During earthworks on Legionów Street in Łódź (Łódź Voivodeship), workers came across human remains. These are fragments of skulls and ribs. Due to the high fragmentation and mixing, it is difficult to determine their origin at the moment. The finds were under archaeological supervision.

On Thursday (June 22), workers working at the construction site on Legionów Street near the intersection with Gdańska Street in Łódź dug up human remains. The official website of the Łódź magistrate informed about the find.

“However, they are so fragmented and mixed up that it is difficult to determine their origin. There are even suspicions that they have been dug up before” – we read in a communiqué on the website of the City of Łódź.

It cannot be ruled out that the finds are related to the building operating in the years 1883–1885, at the then ul. Długa (today ul. Gdańska 15) a tsarist prison. It was intended for political prisoners – including activists of the Polish Socialist Party and other independence movements.

At that time, it was a place of seclusion for women” – we read.
