Hi Genners

I've hit a stumbling block. I've been trying to find my grandparents (Wolf
and Hudes ROZENTAL) grave sites in the new Lodz Jewish cemetery.

I know Wolf and Hudes are buried there. My aunt told me that directly after
the war she visited her father's grave (Wolf). Wolf died in the Lodz Ghetto
in 1942. He was prominent in his synagogue in Lodz and after the war the
remaining synogague members secured a grave and put up a headstone.

My grandmother, who also died in the Lodz Ghetto in 1942, is buried in the
Ghetto Field, so my aunt couldn't find the exact location.

I've searched the Lodz cemetery database online at and couldn't find their names. However,
only a small portion of the people buried in the cemetery are listed so far.

I've contacted the Jewish Community of Lodz and asked about my grandparents
graves and their location. They responded that neither of my grandparents
are buried in the cemetery, which I know is not true.

Is there a place where all the people buried in the cemetery are listed,
other than actually visiting the cemetery? Any and all suggestions on how to
proceed and find the burial spots will be greatly appreciated.

Please reply privately.
