Hello Corinne,
You don't have to go to Yad VaShem in Israel to check for
possible family who were in the Lodz ghetto. There is a 6- (or
is it 5?) volume book listing all residents of the ghetto, in
alphabetical order giving their addresses in the ghetto as well
as where they came >from and, in some case, when they were
transported. The book was published in limited editions, but you
should be able to see it in any Holocaust library in your Jewish
community or in a university library. In Israel there is an
address in Tel Aviv on Dizengoff Street for the Association of
Lodzers in Israel, but I don't have it.

I think they cannot have records
of your relatives unless you enter
this information.

I visited Yad-Vashem in 1991
and completed special forms
for my SEVEN relatives which were killed
in 1941 in Vilnius Ghetto.
After 2 or 3 weeks the Yad-Vashem
sent me acknowledgement that these
records added to their database.

You can take there these forms,
complete it later and send them
by mail.

You can find their web-site and contact them
in advance.

Sincerely,

I am planning a trip to Israel in February and want to visit Yad Vashem to
see if I can find any records of my family who died in the Lodz Ghetto.
Has any Genners got experience of doing this? Are records held there?
Do I have to contact them in advance? I only have a week in Israel
(& as I am taking my son I don't want him to be bored ridged by
"mothers obsession with long lost relatives" as tolerant as he is
I have promised him a holiday too!) So is there other places
I should look?

Do you know if I would find lists of survivors with the name SAFIER
anywhere in Israel?

All suggestions welcome,
Thank you for your help in advance
