My late father was born in Warsaw in January 1920.
From the information he provided when enlisting in the reformed Polish Army in 1941, his parents were Chaim Mlynarz and Sara Mlynarz (nee Waisman) and the family’s pre-War Warsaw address was recorded as having been Ulica Niska 43, Warsaw.
Her first name is not known for sure, but my father had a younger sister, believed “Helen” or similar, born around 1925.
My father obviously survived the War, mainly because he was away at Jewish Trade School in Eastern Poland in 1939, but his family will have perished in Warsaw or in the Death Camps.
My father wouldn’t speak in any detail about his family and I know nothing of any extended family that reasonably existed.
Over a number of years, I have periodically researched all the usual databases, including Arolsen, Yad Vashem, JewishGen, Warsaw State Archives, Jewish Historical Institute, etc., but, apart from my father’s Army Records and my father being listed in a record of “persecuted Jews” held by Yad Vashem, it seems that the family has disappeared from recorded history.
Request for Help
I have two questions: (a) does anyone recognise any of the above details from their own family research and (b) does anyone have a suggestion as to other possible surviving records or any other specific research or enquiries that I might usefully undertake?
Thank you. Barry Mlynarz
