Ah Ha! It's a province as well as a town:
Lódz is the second largest city in Poland and is primarily an industrial town. In the 1800’s, Poland’s government chose Lódz as the country’s new textile center in an attempt to industrialize the nation. By WW I, the town had a population of a half million as Poles came here to work in the textile industry. Today Lódz is still Poland’s textile capital. It is also Poland’s Hollywood with several film schools and studios, including the Film Academy of Poland. Lódz’s Jewish cemetery was founded in 1892 is the largest in all of Europe.
