Zeichnen Street #poland #lodz

Have you checked the original handwritten entry? Maybe it was transcribed
incorrectly.

Also, Zeichnen 10 may have been their address before they were sent to the
ghetto. Streets in Lodz not in the ghetto district probably had their
names changed also. Do you have a prewar address for them? Does it end
in 10?

I had relatives who lived in Lodz at Nowomiejska 10. When they moved to
the ghetto, their prewar address was given as Neustadt 10, which is a
translation and what the street was subsequently called.

The other family who were listed at Zeichnen 10 also moved to Muhlgasse
90 but in a different flat. Are you sure they were not connected to your
relatives?

In JewishGen's Lodz Ghetto database, relatives of my grandmother's and one
other unrelated family are listed as having their original address at
Zeichnen 10, Lodz. I cannot find this street, or any name similar to it,
in the Lodz Ghetto Streets database, or in any other source of Lodz street
names, old or new, and I tried plenty. I even tried translating the word
"zeichnen" (German for to "draw" or "sign"), into Polish ("rysowania" or
"podpisania") to see if there was any street with a similar name, but
there wasn't.

Does anyone have any idea what and/or where this street was?
