1941-1945 Rodopoulos Spiros was my father. He was prisoner in Maria Lanzendorf

Lily S. Woloszynowicz - Poland
I am trying to discover whether or not I have Jewish heritage. I know
that my grandmother was Ukranian, living in Poland, during the war, and
was in the camps. She escaped, married an American soldier, Horace Mitchell,
and my father, Richard Michael Mitchell, was born in Frankfurt, Germany,
10-25-1947. They then moved to the States, where my uncle Daniel and aunt
Lena were born. While my father was raised Catholic, I have had my doubts
about whether Grandma Lily (not her real first name, it was changed when
she came to the USA) is really Catholic. However, my father died when
I was young and I have no contact with that side of my family. I am trying
to find out the following information: what town was my grandmother from,
what camp(s) she was in, what is her nationality.
Albert Philip Fagot, Albert Philip Fagot de LaGarzinni
This is my grandfather i am looking up. I was never told anything of him
except for the few things that my family BELIEVED to be true. which are:
1. name: Albert Philip Fagot OR Albert Philip Fagot de LaGarzzinni 2.
his second last name was Clark/Clarke 3. he was believed to be french
and left his homeland (wherever it was) to prevent persecution and even
execution. 4. he WOULD have been persecuted because perhaps he knew TOO
MUCH of the Nazi idealogy and plans. (i am not sure whether he was a Nazi
(follower) himslelf or one of the many who did not comply with the Ayan
race characteristics.) 5. he some how managed to reach central america
and shortened his original name "Albert Philip Fagot de LaGarzzinni" to
just Albert Philip Fagot. he would then add the letter "H" to Fagot renewing
the family name to Fagoth, now my last name. 6. he some how managed to
reach central america and shortened his original name "Albert Philip Fagot
de LaGarzzinni" to just Albert Philip Fagot. he would then add the letter
"H" to Fagot renewing the family name to Fagoth, now my last name. PLEASE
HELP ME FIND MY HSTORY. HELP ME FIND THE STORY OF MY PAST.

I am currently producing a photography project and website as a tribute
to all those who died in these terrible times. During researching the

name of 'Gander' who were in the holocaust as it has been something that
would mean a lot to me to know that someone along my name has been involved
in this terrible crime that has leftsuch an impression and sadness in
me. So please if anybody could contact me regarding that. God bless those

GUILLERMO JOSE ELFENBAUM
Chrzanow, Poland. My mother Kazimiera Rychlik as a child, together with
her brothers Mieczyslaw, Julian, Franciszek and mother Adela, were taken
in May 1942 from their home in Chrzanow to the Polenlager-32 camp in Oderberg
(Bohumin, Czech Rep.) In Jan 1945 the camp was evacuated and my mother,
together with brothers Mieczyslaw, Franciszek (Julian died in the camp)
and mother Adela, were transported to Frauen KL Ravensbruck camp near
Berlin. She was there from Jan 1945 to Feb/Mar 1945 (block 30 and 32).
In Mar 1945 she, together with brothers Mieczyslaw and Franciszek (her
mother died in the camp), were transported to Oranienburg-Germendorf camp,
were she remained until liberation. She now lives in Poland. While there
are documents confirming her stay in Oderberg,
it is extremely difficult to receive any information about the camps Ravensbruck
and Oranienburg (many documents were destroyed at the end of the war).
I would appreciate any help on these matters.
Armin (Hermann) Schleichkorn
The only survivor from family in Gnazda. Escaped to Palestine on "illegal"
ship in 1941. Younger brother, Morris, listed in German Auschwitz Death
Registry. Trying to find out what happened to parents, sisters, aunts
and uncles. Mother's family: GOLDBERGER
Urbanowice, Silesia, Poland. Stanislaw Goj was a deserter from the German
Army, and imprisoned. His father spent a couple of weeks in Auschwitz
because of this. Stanislaw never returned home at the end of the War,
and was rumoured to have ended his days in a German concentration camp.
I want to find out what happened to him - he's my uncle.

Hello, my name is Natasha Zloccowick. I am 16 years old,
and my family and I have been searching for relatives for the past two
years, to no avail. The majority of our family lives in Brazil, and including
myself, there are only five ZLOCCOWICKS in the United States. We believe
this name may be Polish, but we are unsure. If you or someone you know
is a Zloccowick, please come in contact with us. I live in NY.

Druzinski, Ciarkowski, Zawodny
(these are all surnames)
Where are all my relatives??? I'm only 17, but I have tried to find some
kind of word on what happened to all of my family in Poland. Out of all
the research we have done, we found someone with my surname (ciarkowski)
living somewhere in Germany. I understand that my great grandparents had
gone back to Poland during WWII to help aid their village (village name
not known) and they murdered by Nazis. Many of my family members have
blonde hair and blue eyes (as I do also) so there is a chance they could
have been forced into work camps and survived somehow. If anyone has heard
of anyone from the holocaust with these surnames, please contact me. Every
bit of information would help me tremendously. I would be very grateful.

Antin (Anthony) Zukowsky Zukowski, Zhukovskyj
Pomorjany, Brody. My
grandfather's name was Antin (Anthony) Zukowsky (his last name could be
spelled in many different ways...Zukowski, Zhukovskyj, etc, depending
on who handled documents during the second world war. His nickname was
Tos'ko. The only scars I know of were scars
on both wrists, where manacles had dug into his wrists while he was interred
at Bereza Kartuzka (a concentration camp). I also would like to know if
you have any idea where I can obtain records of Bereza
Kartuska, a concentration camp in Poland/Belorus? I know that Aushwitz
has extensive records available but I have had a heck of a time trying
to find out the exact location of this particular camp. Any chance you
would have knowledge of this camp, and how I could get access to whatever
records they may have made public regarding my grandfather and his internment
My grandfather aided
and hid Jews in Western Ukraine during the Second World War. I would like
to know how one would go about searching for witnesses or people who were
indeed helped by my grandfather in order to have my grandfather publicly
recognized for his bravery by having his name included in The Rightous
among Nations list. I realize this search may be fruitless, due to the
length of time that has elapsed between now and then. He lived in Pomorjany,
Brody (where he hid Jews in his home) and Lvov,
all towns and cities in Ukraine. My aunt
(his sister-in-law) is still living and could stand as one witness. My
mother (his daughter) is also living and could stand as another witness.
I know of three other people who knew of this and are also still living.
I do not know the names of the people he hid, but there may be someone
who might remember his name. My grandfather was also a prisoner of war
in the concentration camp at Bereza Kartuska.
Do you know where I can get any additional information on this particular
concentration camp (ie. names of prisoners, dates, pictures of the camp
etc). Any internet searches I have done have yielded very little information.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! With much gratitude.

DZIUBA - KOCH - BUCK
GLIWICE, POLAND. I am looking for Albina Dziuba
Koch, Walter Koch, twin brother and sister Erich and Erika Koch born in
1941. Also looking for Adolf Buck, father of Margerete Dziuba. Mother
and Father of Albina are Jan and Kataryna Dziuba. My Mother, Margerete
Dziuba, was seperated from her family during the war. She thinks she was
about six years old at the time? She ended up in southern Germany and
then the U.S.. Records show Albina married in 1940 to I assume Walter
Koch because later records show Walter as being the father of Erich and
Erika born in 1941, a year after being married.

My father was born in Goniadz, Poland around 1903. I am
trying to get any information I can about that shtetel. Population, characteristics,

Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
I am not sure where to look. My father was born in Poland
on Sept 2, 1915 Stefan Stankiewicz. He passed away when I was 10 and I
never knew his life history. I think he came from Vilna or Wilnov not
sure if either exist or are spelled correctly. they are from memory. I
never met any of my father's family and would love to get in contact with
anyone who knew my father or his family I do know that my grandmother
was named Aniela.
My grandmother was a Russian woman who was in a concentration
camp during WWII. I was told that she was in Auschwitz, but that may be
wrong. She spoke six languages fluently. She was very beautiful and had
blonde hair and blue eyes. She survived the camp and did not want to return
to Russia and so she came to the U.S. with my grandfather who was Captain
Leonard Buck in the U.S. army. I was told that she falsified her papers,
perhaps claiming that she was Polish, I do not know if this is true. She
committed suicide when my mother was three, in 1950. My grandfather refused
to speak of her and he has passed away. I need to find anyone that knew
her or is related to me. Please contact me with anything you know that
may help me.

1939 - 1945 - Lyse, Poland. I am trying to help my mother-in-law
recover some lost memories from during the war. We are trying to determine
where she was held captive as a slave labourer on a farm. Here is her
story: Her maiden name was Marianna Wisniewska. She was born on September
13, 1922 and was taken from her home in Lyse, Poland,
not far from Kolno. She remembers: a)The region was Ostpreussen and believes
she was somewhere close to Koenigsberg. b)There were mostly women labourers
but also some Polish soldiers. c)The farmer fled his land around the end
of 1944 when the Russians started to push the Germans back. d)The slave
labourers were ushered back to Gdansk, sometimes on foot and sometimes
by truck. e) In Gdansk they were put into boats and taken to Germany.
If this story sounds painfully familiar and anyone out there remembers
Marianna, or Maria Wisniewska, please contact us. We would appreciate
hearing from you. Thank you.

Auschwitz, Riga, Moscow. We ask your help in our search
for PAUL-THEODOR LOWENBERG or PAULS
LEVENBERGS. His brother is still searching for him! A photo is
available at http://remember.org/unite. It is a single frame from the
film taken by the Russian Army Photographer when they liberated Auschwitz
on 23 January 1945. What happened to Paul LOWENBERG after that? - can
you help us in any way? Do you know anyone we can ask? The following is
all we know of him: Paul was born on the 20th January 1922 in Halle/Saale,
Germany. He emigrated to Riga (Latvia) in 1939 to work on a local farm
as part of his 'Hachsharah' training for a life as a farmer in Palestine.
Did he ever get to Israel? His last known address in 1941 was c/o Ostrovskis,
Lacplesa iela 52/54 dr59 Riga, Latvia: We believe that Paul was deported
to Auschwitz by the Nazis when the Germans invaded the Soviet Union. There
is a possibility that Paul may have gone to Moscow after being liberated
from Auschwitz His father DAVID LOWENBERG, had gone to Moscow from Berlin
as a Latvian Citizen in 1941. The father held the German title of 'Diplom-Ingineur'
and had been offered a job to head a Machine Tool Factory in Moscow.

SCHUDMAK, HENRY JOHN ROBERT
I was born in Adelaide 1947. My father served in the British
and Australin navy medical corp. He spoke 7 languese. He told me of his
travels in Europe, but would not talk about the war just to say it was
very bad and that one day he would tell me all, but he died in Edinbourge
Scotland 25 years ago and told me nothing. I have made contact with a
lady in Queens New York who's mother had the same name, but came from
a different area in Poland. All my life I
have longed to know my roots. Can anybody out there help? I now have 4
chilren who ask question and I have no answers. There are no other SCHUDMAKS
in AUSTRALIA. He did tell me that he lost all his family in the war and
he did not want to bring up his sad history.

JOZEFOWICZ, Jozef - PTOK, POLAND
My Great-grandfather, Grand-mother, Grand-aunt, and two
Grand-uncles were all killed by the Gestapo for helping the Allies
during World War Two. My Great-grandfather (Jozef Jozefowicz) married
Vernice Stankowicz, and had 6 or 7 children. My Grandfather (Walenty)
came to the U.S. in 1913 along with his brothers John and Frank. The remainder
of the family remained in Poland. My Grandfather used to send mail to
a little village in Poland called Ptok. It is near Bialystok. When I would
ask my Grandfather about the relatives in Poland, he would simply tell
me that they were all dead. That they had been hanged by the Gestapo for
helping Allied soldiers. While my Grandfather professed to be Christian,
the Jozefowiz surname is quite Jewish, and my Grandfather could speak
fluent Hebrew even though he never attended school. He was also fluent
in Russian, German, Polish, and English. Any help in finding out more
about my relatives would be greatly appreciated.
