I am curious if it is known if many Jews from Lodz moved to Germany, specifically Falkenstein, in the years after World War 1, and if so why. I know of one relative of mine, named Ezra Russek, who moved there with his family. There is another Russek who made the same move with her husband at around the same time, and I'm trying to establish if they were related, or if it was a common move and this is just a coincidence (it was a common name also, I recognize, but there are other facts that suggest a connection).
Any information would be appreciated.
RUSSEK, MITLER, JACOBOVITCH in Poland (Zloczew and Lodz);
FREEDMAN, LEVY in Belarus, Lithuania (Grodno, Kovno);
SHLOIMOVITZ, HERSCOVICI, POLSTER in Romania (Iasi)
