Thanks to all for the quick and loads of information especially Robert Murowchick for articles and Sherri Bobish for the link to the Passiac County site with naturalization papers. WOW. So lot of transcribing. I will post an update for the record. It seems most of the family was in the US before the war.

Besides Henry and Dora and son, "Michael" who survived the war, another sister, Brandla GURTMAN, b. abt 1877/1885, survived the war but then sorta disappeared post war in Hanover, Germany with her husband, Szmul Icyk HOLANDER, b.1869 on petition filed by a Morti HOLLANDER of Israel:

The missing Samuel and Breindla HOLLANDER are declared dead with the restriction sus 12 para. 2 Versch, Ges. The time of the death of the missing is determined to be December 31, 1945 at midnight.

Another sister, Nacha. b1879, Kiev was married to Awner DANCYGIER, b. 1872, Szczekociny. Arolsen formally reported no info, but they had a son, Dawid Mendel DANCYGIER, 14 Dec 1900 who moved to France. He married as her second husband, Blima CYMBAL, b. 1893, Lodz. She first married Maurice ALTMANN (two "NN") having a son Herbert ALTMANN. In 1972, Herbert ALTMANN of ### West End Ave., New York, NY made an informal trace request for his stepfather, Awner. Now as then Arolsen reported "transfer of DANCYGIER David, born 1st September 1900 Szczikociny, from Camp Drancy to Concentration Camp Lublin-Majdanek on 6th March 1943." Arolsen, ltr, 12 Mar 1973
One last brother, Izrael GURTMAN, b. 1901, Szczekociny, filed a number of Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem in 1956.
