Łódź is Poland's second largest city (population 767,628 in 2006). It is located in the centre of the country and serves as the capital of the Łódź Voivodeship. The coat of arms of Łódź is canting, i.e. it contains a boat, alluding to the city's name which literally means "a boat" in Polish. Prior to World War II, the Jewish population of Łódź numbered about 233,000, accounting for one-third of the city’s population. The community was wiped out in the Holocaust.Motto: Ex navicula navis (From a boat, a ship)-Wikipedia-
