Looking for family of Israel and Ann Rzezak (Siegel) #holocaust

Sharon E Siegel

My father-in-law and mother-in-law were prisoners in the Lodz Ghetto, Buchenwald, Auschwitz, and then in Siberian logging camp.  Most of their family was murdered.  I'm hoping someone might have information about any surviving relatives/descendants of the Rzezak, Iglicaka, Pakentregger families from Lodz, Poland and surrounding areas.  They also had an infant baby together that died after their passage through Vienna in November of 1945 and before their voyage in May of 1946 on the Marine Perch from Germany to NYC.  We are hoping to learn more about the death and remains of this baby, Rosalia Rzezak.  Sincerely, Sharon Siegel

Hello Sharon, 
I have Rzezak family in my tree. All of them originated from a town called Koniecpol. Should you find a connection back to Koniecpol, please reach out. I am in touch with a couple descendants who are all cousins by marriage.
