Mrs Wieslawa doesn’t know her real family name or surname.

She was born around 1943 in the Lodz ghetto, than she and her family were resettled to a labour camp in Piotrkow. Her parents managed to take her out of the camp and gave her to a Polish family in December 1943.

She was hidden by Helena and Stefan Gruchala.

She also knows that her Polish grandmother – Jozefa Adaszek – was nicknamed by her Jewish neighbors “Stanislawowa”. They lived in Piotrkow Trybunalski.

There is a BLUMSZTAJN or BLAUSZTAJN surname that she recalls from her very early childhood but she’s not sure if it was her surname. It is possible.

I posted her pictures at View Mate – pictures from 1948, 1950, 1968 and 1972. Maybe someone with roots in Lodz or Piotrkow will see any similarity? Maybe any of you knows her story? View Mates 9826 to 9828

Please help her finding her lost identity!
