Ship name for passenger list #passengerlists

My maternal grandmother, Jennie (Beck) PEARLMAN came to the USA in the 1890's.  In 1925 she traveled on her own to visit the "Alte Heim" - the old country.  In her case, this was Vilna, Lithuania (then part of the USSR) and Warsaw, Poland.  There is a photo of her on the ship, but the name is partly hidden.  What's visible is _ _TZOW BREMAN.  A key to finding the correct ship is that she was not an immigrant at this point, but an American passenger.

Does anyone know how I can figure out the full name of the ship and then find the manifest/passenger list?

A Bremen passenger list (1907-1939) on Ancestry https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/webasm-9734/
shows that Jennie Pearlman, 49, departed Bremen on 5 Sept 1925 on the Lützow. The same database can be searched without an Ancestry subscription, at

Jennie is also listed in New York arrival records on Ancestry
https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/nypl/
Her surname is misspelled there -- PEARLEMAN. It's spelled correctly on the actual passenger list, which is headed "List of United State Citizens." Her entry includes her home address and a passport number. Her passport application isn't on Ancestry, but may be available from the U.S. State Department:
