St. Faustyna Kowalska, the author of the book that has had more translations from Polish into foreign languages than any other and a great advocate of God’s mercy, spent a few crucial years of her life in Łódź. It is in this city of textile industry that the young girl stepped on the path of her Christian vocation
Łódź has gone through a very deep and painful transformation. Perhaps that is why is was able to make such a huge leap forward. The city is the right place for the Expo. It has got its past and the soul, but is has also got a concrete economic significance.
Łódź takes in anyone: natives and strangers. It is like a train station. Without asking questions of who you are and why you came or where you want to leave for, it accepts under its roof a burgher and a peasant, a worker and an artist, a Pole, a Jew, and a German.
