Luzow? - Poland town name #poland


Steven Granek
 

Can anyone make sense of a town name “Luzow” or “Luzon” in (I assume) Poland? I’ve just come across a scribbled note from my father where he notes - Leah (my grandmother.. who came to the US in the early 1900s) was born in “Luzow” (hard to read) and later lived in Pabianice with an already married sister. I had always thought she was born in Pabianice. Any help is appreciated.

I checked around Pabianice and there are no towns with that name near by. There is a Lukow near the Belarus border, where many Jews were transported to during the 2nd WW.

I found a Jezow near there in case it was a misread of a few letters,

SOLVED. Thank you.   This turns out to be Ludza (Lutxin in Yiddish) in present day Latvia.  Thank you.
