Searching: PLACHINSKY and MENDELOWITZ from Lodz #lodz #poland

Dear Lodz subscribers,

I am researching the PLACHINSKY (PLACZINSKI) and MENDELOWITZ
(MENDELOWICZ) family >from Lodz.

My brother-in-law's grandfather Lazer (Louis) PLACZINSKI was born in
Lodz in the 1880's and married Esther MENDELOWICZ in Lodz. They
immigrated to America c.1912 Their children were Philip (possibly
Fayvel) born c.1912 and Belle born 1915. Belle was my brother-in-law's
mother.

We are in touch with many Plachinsky cousins who live in Israel,
Australia, Canada, and the U.S.A.

One of the Plachinsky cousins with whom we are in contact was
interviewed by Steven Spielberg's team while they were researching for
the film, Schindler's List, because he was a survivor of the camp
depicted in the movie. They needed to verify the facts in the book,
Schindler's List, and he was able to corroborate the details in the
book. He was also videotaped for the Shoah Foundation.

We would love to hear >from other researchers of these families and/or
those who have these surnames in their family tree.

Thank you.
