Seeking info re my ggm's time in Warsaw #poland

Hello fellow researchers,

My great-grandmother went to Warsaw with some of her children
including my grandmother to give them better education and she ran
there a rooming house to support themselves. I was wondering if there
is a way to search for any information about this period in their
life. They weren't born there and I don't know if they had any close
relatives in Warsaw. I don't know if that can be of any use, but my
grandmother used to tell me that she knew the man who invented
Esperanto language. This must had been Dr. Ludwig Lazarus Zamenhof and
I believe they met in Warsaw. However, he was much much older than my
grandmother, so it wasn't a romantic encounter as far as I know...

Thanks,

Dear all,

Thanks to the help of Nicole Berlin I was able to locate addresses
where I believe the family of my grandmother lived in Warsaw between
1909 and 1915. The main address was Nalewki 20, and there is another
address on Rybaki 2, where I believe one of grandmother's brothers
stayed. I understand that Nalewki was later in the middle of the
Warsaw getto. I was wondering if there is a chance that any original
buildings survived? Also, is there any information on schools in that
area at that time? My grandmother was 7 years old when they moved to
Warsaw and I know that she attended some school there. I would like to
be able to locate possible schools...

Thanks,
