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
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:
