The first two sculptures, inaugurating the series by dr Marcin Mielczarek, a lecturer at the Władysław Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź, were unveiled on June 1, 2022, on 47, Górnicza Street and 28. Bracka Street. This is the site of the former German Nazi Concentration Camp for Polish Children on Przemysłowa Street.

Górnicza Street housed the camp’s photographic atelier, which is why the sculpture depicts children’s clogs standing next to a camera. On Bracka Street, there was a kitchen vegetable peeling room – here children’s clogs stand next to a knife and peelers.

Kinder Muster – Children’s Model is a project of sculptural arrangement of small items of everyday life of Polish children in the German Nazi concentration camp in Łódź, Poland. The “Trepki” [Children’s clogs] sculptures, placed at various locations on the former camp site, will form a kind of historical trail for visitors.

The project, implemented by the Museum of Polish Children – victims of totalitarianism, is subsidized by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
