No words can express the wonderment i felt at looking at the streets my mother walked as a child of Lodz. I could never get her to talk about those days. The questions i had would bring her to tears so i eventually stopped trying. I am left with just imaging where she may have been at the various locals in the postcards. Can these ever be published onto a book??? Would like to send a contribution to continue the collection and uplinking. Where to send? Is there such a site for Radomska [Radomsko] and Chenztachowa ? [Czestochowa] thanks to all the contributors...... E-mail

Fascinating site - my mothers family came from Lodz, were in the ghetto and the few survivors ended up in Auschwitz - this may not be the appropriate forum to find out if anyone knew the family - my mother's name was the Renia Grynberg (born 1923), daughter of David. She had two sisters and five brothers. Could someone let me know where there is a chat room where it would be appropriate to ask this question? My email is

Excellent resource! My mother's mother side of my family came from Lodz to New York during the great wave of immigration during the turn of the century (1890 - 1910). My grandmother (who by the way died about five years age 105) was born Celia Sadt in Lodz. She was the daughter of Fischel (Philip) and Rabecca Sadt. Happily almost all of my family emigrated and avoided the horrors of the holocaust, but Grandma's older sister Sura Nacha stayed behind and she and her young husband perished. Anyone want more information on the Sadt family please contact me. Also, my ancestors lived on or near a street named after a Jew ... one Mudcha Gebbis (or Gellis?) ... anyone have info. on this street? Best wishes, Mark N. Silber (Budd Lake, New Jersey, USA)

My mother's family, Kuchinsky lived in Lodz. I believe my great grandfather was Moshe, a chazan and mohel and his son Jakob was a well known musician. Can anyone help? Muriel Beaver.

A first-class site, particularly the old photos. Am writing a book about a Lodz-born woman who immigrated to the U.S. in 1919 and later was the first U.S. nurse to die in WWII. Frances Slanger was her name. Desperately trying to get info about her years in Lodz but thus far no luck. Any advice? Thanks.

It's a pleasure to see a website like this. I'm born in Lodz in 1925. As a child I was Hershel Rozenberg and lived on Pomorska 15 til 1940, when we went to the Ghetto. I lost all my family during the Holocaust, but am looking for Chil Rozenberg's wife who escaped to the Soviet Union after the German occupation. Chil Rozenberg, my uncle was in the beginning of 1930's a Posel in The sejm of Poland elected under the cover of the PPS party. Anything would be appreciated. My email is;

I am the great grandson of Beniamin Russ. My father told me he was one of the leaders of the lodz ghetto. I find this site to be fascinating to see him listed on this site and very informational. -

My Name is Jay Poznanski. My father is a survivor of the Holocaust. His name is Arie (Lemek/Lemel) Poznanski. I understand that there was a large factory in Poland called the Poznanski Factory. Your web site shows the grave of Izrael and Eleonora Poznanski. I guess it is a long shot to see if there is any relationship between my Dads family and Izrael but I just had to post here. Poznanski is quite the common name but Jewish Poznanski's are fewer to come by. I would love to find this out for my dad. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank you..Jay Poznanski..

Very glad for your wonderful website. Kol Hakavod.

My late grandfather, Baruch Bendet Rosental perished in the Lodz Ghetto. He was from Pabianice, near Lodz. My grandmother, Chaya Fradel Karo Rosental, perished in Pabianice. Their daughter, my mother, Lola (Leah) Rosental was also in the Lodz ghetto & did survive. She married Natan Krol, my father, also a survivor from Pabianice.

I am searching for any information about Hersh Karo, my mother's uncle who lived in Lodz before the war. All I know of him is that he owned a kosher restaurant & catering service in Lodz, and he was married & had a daughter Rifka & a son. Nothing was heard of any of them after the war.

I am also searching information about my mother's other uncle, Simcha Karo & his family. He owned a textile factory in Lodz before the war.

For years my mother had been looking for information about her younger brother, Wolf Anshel Rosental of Pabianice, who had not been heard of since after the war.

Thank you to anyone who may be able to help. Sincerely,

His father was Moshe Yakov Feldman or Yacov Moshe Feldman, his mother was Raizel Pisarek. My father's name is Ignacz Feldman (Szrulek Feldman). My Mom's name is Lonia Feldman nee Milsztajn. Her father's name was Godel Milsztajn. Please if anyone out there knows of my family's history or any other relatives, please, please contact me: Vardit Zafri....

My grandfather and grandmother came from Lodz. His family name was Podlowski. One of my father's brothers was name Moshe, a name that I found in the Belchatow page written by Leib Podlowski. Is anybody out there who could possibly be a relative? We also spelled the name Podlofsky. My father's immigration papers say Gastel Podlowski. Email
