Military Regional Court in Łódź started performing its duties on March 1946 and during the time of its activity it was governed by three bosses: Mikołaj Nippe, Bronisław Ochnio oraz Henryk Andrysiak. The courts, after completing their duty which was breaking underground independence movements, were dissolved on 30th of April 1955. In Military Regional Court in Łódź 8644 people were sentenced. There were 103 women which were judged and belonged to Underground Polish Army. The biggest number of sentences were announced in 1949 (31) whereas in 1951 and 1955 none of the women was judged. The highest penalty, given to women associated with Underground Polish Army, was given to Janina Torczyńska and it was 15 years.
