Re: Factories in Lodz prior to and during the Holocaust #poland #lodz

My family was at 3 Brezinka and had an appetizing store. When I visited Lodz
that Side of the street had been redeveloped during the Soviet era. My
Mother's home was now a bank. The other side of the street was still WW 2
structures.

Hi
According to family legend, my great-grandfather Mosjek Szampanier owned=
a "factory" in Lodz, which I later found out was one of many that were
operated in someone's home. Apparently he had two or three looms and
employed workers to operate them. The home at 13 Brezinska Gasse was
located within the Baluty section of Lodz, which later became the Lodz
ghetto.

Is there any way I can find out what happened to my great-grandfather and
the home >from which he operated his "factory"? He was quite elderly when
the war came. My grandmother received a letter that her father "died of
malnutrition" but I have not found his name among the many lists related
to the Lodz ghetto nor among Yad Vashem records.
