Gepner and Prywes #warsaw

p.tomaszewski@...
 

Dear Friends,

I am searching for the relatives of two merchants of metal and alloys from Warszawa (Warsaw) in Poland: Gepner (Abraham?) and Prywes. It was suggested that during the WWII their establishments were taken in the formal administration by their Polish friends to save their estates; in opposite situation their estates were lost for German occupies. It seems that one of such friend was Prof. Jan Czochralski from Warsaw Technical University.

I will be very happy to take a contact with the persons who can help in the verification of the above information.

With best regards,

Pawel Tomaszewski

Leora Tec is the Director of Bridge To Poland, an organization that she founded to engage people in topics related to Jewish Poland with an emphasis on non-Jewish commemoration of Jewish life.  organizes trips that offer the opportunity to engage with these topics on the ground. Leora is on the Board of the American Association of Polish-Jewish Studies and is the American Ambassador to Brama Grodzka. She holds a BA from Wellesley College and a JD/LLM from Duke University School of Law.

Yiddish Diary from Lodz 1942 Translation needed VM76289

spolon@...
 

I posted a double page of a hidden diary written in the Ghetto of Lodz in 1942 (Viewmate VM76289). It is in yiddish with some sentences or words in polish. It seems that the author of this diary, Leo Wolle, was a dry cleaner in the city of Lodz before the war. I would be gratefull to anyone who would help in translating those pages. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for replying.  I have looked on Google.  I have now followed up one person's experience of the bureaucracy in Wroclaw, which sounds quite daunting !.

But I hope my cousin and I can get through those hurdles and erect an acknowledgement of my grandparents'  existence one hundred years ago in a small Silesian town
