The building, currently the headquarters of YMCA Łódź - the Łódź branch of the Christian Young People Association - Polish YMCA, was constructed in 1932-1935 according to the design by Wiesław Lisowski. It housed the first swimming pool in Lodz (existing to this day). In 1949, a theatre room was added on the western side. This modernistic building is located at 4a Moniuszki Street, between Piotrkowska and Sienkiewicza Streets.

YMCA is the place where Strzemiński’s students organise an exhibition of their works because no other gallery has consented to putting them on show. Before they reach the exposition together with their Professor, it is destroyed by a group of security police workers.
