Looking for Shoah survivors/descendants: Flekier and Berenholc, Warka, Poland #israel

My immediate family FLEKIER and BERENHOLC were from the town Warka (in yiddish Vurke), Poland.  My research indicates they were residents of Warka from c.1820s.  Warka is about 25 miles south of Warsaw.  

I'm searching for Shoah survivors and their descendants of the following families:
Flekier, Berenholc, Lezerowicz and Wertchajzer all of Warka.  

At Yad Vashem there are Pages of Testimony submitted by :

1.  Yafa Burger of Tel Aviv for her cousin Elka Lezerowicz (nee Flekier); 

2.  Tzipora Flekier-Dzhevko (also of Tel Aviv) for her father Laibl Flekier and his family from Warka.

3.  Yitzchak Flekier for his family from Warka.

As spellings of names weren't standardised 'back in the day', Flekier may also appear as Fleker, Flikier, likewise Berenholc could be written as Berencholtz, Berengoltz etc.  

Wishing all chag sukkot sameach.
